Help Us Help Desmon Silva

     Thank you for taking the time to visit our page.  Desmon Silva needs our love and support.  On July 16, Desmon stopped breathing.  He is currently in the ICU on a ventilator, fighting to recover from a condition the doctors believe occurred as a result of his recent battles with both Covid19 and influenza that has left him (we pray temporarily) unable to move on his own.  Desmon has always been a lover, but now also a fighter.  He is 22 years young, and will likely celebrate his 23rd birthday in the hospital.  Despite his condition, Desmon remains full of life. 

     Desmon’s smile could light up the skyway.  His giggle could make waves ripple through oceans worldwide.  His zest for life could move mountains.  He will fight the fight to come back, but he has a long road ahead.  Desmon is a devoted and loving son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, friend, partner, and recent RN working in a hospital on the front lines - always willing to go the extra mile for his family and friends, and his patients.  Let us come together to go the extra mile for him.  Desmon needs to return to breathing and walking on his own, so that he is able to continue helping and healing people, living the big and the small moments of his young life, catching sunsets, seeking adventure, celebrating his accomplishments, and growing old with those he loves.  Des – we all are rooting for you. 

     This GoFundMe will help ease the financial burden that Desmon will be left with, including costs associated with his current treatment, as well as the extensive rehab he faces in the road ahead. No amount is too small. He will be grateful  for anything you can contribute- evenif it is prayers.
