for Emily Williams

On October 26th, Emily unexpectedly collapsed and went into cardiac arrest and was put on a ventilator. During the course of her hospital stay thus far she has been put into a medically induce coma, continued to battle seizures, fevers and aspirating pneumonia. As of today there is talk with ENT to remove her from the ventilator to prevent permanent damage and place a Trach in to assist with her breathing. Once the seizures have been stabilized and kept at bay for a certain time frame, the medical staff will attempt to bring Emily out of the coma and complete a Neurological exam to assess the quality of life that she will have long term. We expect that there will be extensive rehab from a Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy perspective in order to get Emily back to herself.
Emily’s employer has informed the family that she has no short term disability benefits and they will need to continue to pay her medical premiums in order to keep her medical insurance active.
I have set up this account to help with this unexpected financial burden! I ask for your contributions to assist in Emily’s medical expenses and to also assist her family to continue to care for her 1 year old daughter, Mila.
All donations made will go directly to Emily’s family.
