Help With Hailey Funeral

Meet Hailey Gonzales.  Vibrant, innocent, humble ,full of love and a child full of life gone to too soon. She was my everything; my sunshine when I wake and my peace when I rest. Taken from me unexpectedly. Today I had her in my arms and tomorrow she was gone. 

Hailey felt really sick. She was complaining about headaches and tummy aches so I took her to her  personal Doctor that same day to find out what was going on and her Doctor had prescribe her with medication and told me that everything will be alright.

Shortly after leaving her doctor I could see that something was wrong and I had an strong feeling that there was more to it so I end up taking her straight to the ER in hopes that the Doctors at the “Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center” would know the reason as to why my daughter was having these symptoms and would hopefully treat her. 

After the long wait in the ER, I finally got through with a Doctor; They gave Hailey IV and prescribed her for medication and told me her symptoms is because of dehydration and that she will be fine.

A few minutes after being  left in the room alone with my daughter, her whole body started to shake as if she was having a seizure so I rushed out the room screaming for help because my daughter never got in to this state before. (she’s not an sickly child) after I get the attention from a nurse, they came in the room and brushed it off as if it’s normal or something.

I asked and beg if they could please look deeply to see what’s really going on with my daughter and they just gave me the cold shoulder and told me that my daughter will be alright and that she’s just dehydrated and follow up with discharging me without running any real test to see what was really wrong with my daughter.

After being discharged from the ER, Hailey and I had gotten home around 3am and Hailey was still complaining about her head hurting so she went straight to bed.

Around 7am I checked up on Hailey and she was unresponsive. I grab my cell phone and called 911, the ambulance came and rushed us to the ER and at the ER I was told that Hailey is bleeding from the brain and her heart rate is dropping so they transferred her to a different hospital (New York Presbyterian Hospital ) to hopefully stop the bleeding but it was too late to safe my Hailey.

All of her brain cells had end up dying leaving her brain dead with the cause of death being aTumor.
The doctors at New York Presbyterian Hospital tried their best to save Hailey but there was nothing they could have done. Hailey had a tumor in her brain that caused a blood vessel to burst.

My last moment with my daughter Hailey is when the Doctors gave her to me to hold in my arms until her heart stop beating and now my last memories of her is "Mommy My Head Hurts"

The sudden turn of event had me asking what if, what if the doctors had took the time out at my first visit to do further checking, would my baby still be alive?  

As a single parent living in New York it can be very hard. I am asking for help in any way possible to help bury my daughter Hailey and give her the funeral she deserves.

My beautiful sunshine taken from me in this time of darkness I pray that God gives me the courage and ability to be strong and get through these trying times.
