Frances Jouravel-Barnachea

On  4/2/2018 Frances experienced a massive asthma attack which caused her to stop breathing. This lead to cardiac arrest and she needed to be revived. She is currently in the ICU sedated and on life support.  Her vitals are looking good and they started her on breathing trials which she has started to breath on her own.  In the next few days they are working on slowing waking her up from her sedation cooling her body temperature and weaning her off the sedation medication. There is hope that she will wake up soon but the struggle is tough right now. The Dr's are optimistic of a full recovery but there is a lot of unknowns.

Eddie has been by her side since the start and family and friends are pouring in with love and support.
I wanted to take up a collection as I know times are rough. Eddie is remaining strong but I know he's not evening thinking about bills and money right now. With both of them not working at the moment and medical bills piling up I thought we could lend them a hand.

Eddie has not asked me to do this and I know he's too proud to ask for anything from anyone, but... If we can get some money together and provide any assistance it will be appreciated.
