Ashley Bragan Brazelton is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Jessica Kuklo.
Hi friends, I'm reaching out because we need your help....well actually Jess really needs our help! Our dear friend, Jessica Kuklo was found unconscious on December 27th from complications from the flu and was barely hanging onto her life. After several days of no contact with anyone, the sweetest and coolest guy I know (those of you who know him know this to be true), Joseph Fuller, went by her house to check on her. She had been sick for several days before the last time anyone had heard from her, so we all were concerned and worried. We just assumed she either had started feeling better and traveled to spend the holidays with family or was resting and would be back to her normal self in no time. Well that unfortunately was not the case. Joseph reached out to her close friends and once it was confirmed noone had heard back from her he then became what we consider a hero! There is no doubt in my mind that she would not be with us today if Joseph had not made the decision to go by her house to see what was up that day. Thank God he did! The police and paramedics thought she had already passed, but someone else had other plans for her that day when she started to barely open her eyes and was indeed still alive! She was rushed to the hospital and soon was suffering from pneumonia, congested heart failure, liver & renal failure and was in critical condition. Myself and a couple of other friends got there as soon as we could and received the news when we arrived that the possibility of her pulling through was not in her favor. It was devastation and sadness among everyone who knew and loved her, but I knew deep down not to give up hope. She was a fighter and I knew if anyone could put up a damn good fight, it would be her!!! Well that's exactly what she did and is still doing today. After almost an entire month in ICU enduring dialysis, being on and off the ventilator, getting a tracheostomy and basically 100% fighting for her life, she is still with us. The fact that she is still here truly is a miracle! It was within her last week of being at the hospital that our prayers were heard and she made a miraculous recovery. Don’t get me wrong she has a very long road ahead, but she is here and we are so BLESSED to still have her. She will not be able to get back to work for several months and she is already behind on everything because she lost a whole month of her life. She has started physical and occupational therapy and is now focusing on healing and getting her life back. Please help us get her back on her feet and ease her mind from stress and worry because that is the last thing we want her to do right now. We need her to focus on gaining her strength back! We love you Jess and so grateful to our Heavenly Father that it was not your time to leave this earth. Since she will be out of work for some time any help towards her mortgage, medical bills, everyday expenses, caring for her fur babies etc, will be so appreciated! Please contribute if you can ❤❤❤ Thanks friends and I know Jess will forever be grateful!
