On Saturday evening, Nadia was having horrible stomach pains. After a few minutes, she was not getting better and her husband took her to the hospital to get checked. She was sent home after letting her know that it was gastritis. The following day after being in bed for awhile, her husband noticed she was becoming unresponsive to his multiple attempts to communicate with her and immediately took her to the hospital. She was told that she had viral meningitis and it quickly spread to her heart and lead to fluid entering her lungs. Meningitis is an inflammation of brain and spinal cord membranes, typically caused by an infection. By the time they diagnosed exactly what it was, it was too late. In a matter of 36 hours, her case went from bad to worse. The virus has affected her nervous system and left her brain dead. The doctors had given her 24 hours to see if there would be any signs of potential brain activity, but, none ever showed. With the satus of her health getting worse, they left her on life support. With no other options, the family will have to make the critical decision of pulling her off of life support. She will be leaving the world on the night of August 10th, 2017, with all of her loving family, along with her 2 children, there to say goodbye for the last time.
Her husband Javier Falcon is now having to deal with the reality of a future with him being the sole supporter and provider for his kids and his household.
We are reaching out to our family and our commmunity to donate and help the family with medical and living expenses. We are accepting all forms of donations. Ezequiel Fernandez, who is a very close family friend and grew up with Nadia has also helped them with their kids and any life situation, is assisting with the direct deposit into his checking account due to Javier not having an account. All donations are being withdrawn and given to Javier Falcon and family directly. If you want to send in a personal check or drop it off in person, the mailing address is 2400 Immokalee Rd Suite #3 Naples, Fl 34110.
We want to express our gratitude and encourage everyone to spread the word.
