I created this go fund me to help two of my best friends and their children during this very difficult time. As many of you know DJ has been in the hospital and away from his family since November 26, 2021.
He has had a long journey so far. He started out in Milford hospital where his lungs were completely filled with blood and fluid, caused by a hereditary heart issue. This issue has taken a toll on his body and his heart is currently functioning at an extremely low percentage. A combination of the low heart function, and heart medication caused three blood clots that required immediate surgery at UMASS. Healing from this surgery has been pretty difficult as he suffered damage to his left leg/foot and other complications. He is currently waiting in the hospital now to be transferred to Brigham & Women’s in Boston to under go surgery for his heart. Hospitals are now starting to shut down surgeries and the waiting process may take awhile.
Heather & Dj are the most amazing people I know and are the first to give a hand to anyone that needs help. Also the best parents to their two children Hunter & Kennedy . Both DJ & Heather have not been able to work since Dj has been in the hospital and while both of them are self employed - keeping up with every day bills and now medical bills rolling in, things can get tight. In the season of giving I would love to show them how great this community is and make their life a little easier. Especially because we don’t know how long this road will be and when/if Dj will be able to return to work as his job requires much physical labor.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and helping support such an amazing family ❤️
