On Saturday, January 27, my 43 year old brother, John (JY) Yablonski, suffered a hemorrhagic stroke while coaching his son's basketball game. Fortunately, he was surrounded by people who recognized the signs of a crisis and he was taken to the hospital immediately. This was by far one of the scariest moments for him and our family. He has undergone many tests and spent a week in the ICU. John had been told by the doctors that he is lucky to be alive after this event. He suffers from frequent severe headaches and will need the next several weeks to rest and recover. While the prognosis is good at this time, the long term impact of John's medical issues are unknown. If you know John, you know that resting is not an easy thing. If he is not working, he is usually playing or coaching basketball, out doing things with his family or rooting for his alma mater Seton Hall. These things will need to take a backseat while he recuperates. His wife and 2 young sons need him to recover and return to the vital role he plays in their lives. It is during this time that I am asking for your support. Medical bills along with the inability to work will take a toll on John and his family. Any donation will make a difference and will be deeply appreciated!
