Hope fund for Dana

This is my niece, Dana Gabrielle Canonigo. 

The day she turned 3 months old, she had a cardiac arrest. 

Dana is currently at the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit of the Children's Medical Center of Dallas. 

While her conditions are stable at the moment, she remains on life support. She is also being treated for severe pulmonary hypertension.

We will continue to celebrate little miracles. Today (April 14, 2015), she opened her eyes and wiggled her tiny little toes. We believe this is her way of telling us to keep on hoping. And to keep on fighting with her. 

My sister and my brother in law are currently out of work so they can be with her 24/7. They live 2 hours away from the hospital but the Ronald McDonald House has been very kind enough to give them a room. And while the humungous hospital bill will be covered by insurance, I would like to ask for your help to help me build the Hope for Dana fund. The money raised can certainly help Dana's family cope with the day to day needs. 

Your contribution will be truly, truly appreciated. 

Your prayers, in lieu of monetary contribution, will still be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your love and support. 


With much love,
Auntie Jodee
