This go fund me page is for my best friend’s family (Julie Koskiewicz), specifically to help her dad, Allen Koskiewicz with medical bills, rehab, equipment, and other necessities of living.
Unfortunately on May 3rd 2018, Allen suffered from a massive stroke which was caused from a large clot in his neck (that would not allow blood to flow to his brain) and surgery was not an option to remove the clot. The stroke has caused left sided paralysis and swelling in his brain that over time will take a lot of rehab and hard work to get him functioning well enough to come home again.
Julie called her father Allen, When he answered she knew right away something wasn’t right. Her sister Kristina called 911.
The Ambulance rushed him over to Centegra where they diagnosed him with having a massive stroke. Staff at Centegra decided he needed to be transferred to CDH (Central Dupage Hospital) for more acute treatment. Allen arrived to CDH and this is where the intense monitoring started. CAT scan upon CAT scan, MRI, and many medications later, The swelling has finally leveled off and Allen is still struggling with not being able to eat and having left sided weakness with other residual effects.
Since Allen has been in the ICU Julie, Diane and Kristina spend every morning and night by their dads side. Making sure he is getting the best treatment possible.
Knowing that the best medical treatment is costly the Koskiewicz's can use any donation possible for upcoming bills, etc.
Yesterday 5/11/2018 Diane retire from her job. Something both her and Allen have dreamed about for sometime. Traveling, spending time with grandkids, and their daughter Julie’s wedding in November, and so much more.
I feel that starting this page will help get him the best care,.
I know this would mean a lot to the Koskiewicz family.
