Daniel & Monique

I am a friend of Daniel’s and Monique. They were the first friends I met of my fiancé’s and right away they welcomed me in with open arms. Over the years we’ve become not just friends but family. August 22nd We were devastated by the news of the loss of our sweet Monique. Covid has played a part of being a huge barrier and making it hard to be with Daniel during this tragic time. 

We’ve stayed in touch with him every day since Monique’s passing and during a conversation between Daniel and I on September 4th, he mentioned how he was not feeling well. He said, “Shannon, I guess that’s what dehydration does to you.” We left the conversation at that and I scolded him for not drinking enough water. 

Little did the both of us know that he would be facing very life threatening problems. Our dear friend checked into the hospital shortly after our conversation and has been fighting for his life ever since. We thought we almost lost him and it was the most painful heart wrenching feeling that one can experience.

Currently he is in ICU and the nurses and doctors say he is strong and a fighter. My heart pours out to him and his family. In less than a month they have gone through so much and again because of Covid no one can see Daniel and he’s not in a position to talk. Daniel is in the hospital alone and many of us want to rip down the hospital doors and fight with him. 

Feeling helpless and imagining what his journey is going to be like once he is out of the hospital pains me. Not only will he be recovering physically, but he will be trying to recover emotionally from the loss of his wife. The last thing I want him to recover from are finances, medical expenses and funeral costs. Friends, I come to you in a time of need. Anything that you are able to contribute, even a prayer will be very much obliged. Thank you for taking the time to read this. We can’t do this alone but together we can move mountains.
