Patty and Her Children Need Help!

Patty is a loving and dedicated mother of three children (Nathan 13, Raul 12 and Madison 7) and just as loving and dedicated to the rest of her family. On July of 2017 life changed for Patty, she suffered a stroke that left her partially blind, after several tests, the docters diagnosed her with a brain AVM "Arteriovenous Malformation" that was present since birth. A brain AVM is a tangled of abnormal and poorly formed blood vessels (arteries and veins) that have a higher rate of bleeding than normal well-formed vessels. Due the location of her AVM, a surgery was not possible and her only option for a treatment was radiation therapy, a therapy that takes 2 years to be effective. Yet even radiaition therapy does not guarantee her AVM to not rupture causing a head hemorrhage (a bleeding in the brain). What complicated her condition even more was that Patty was also pregnant.  Docters advised a pregnancy termination, but due to the fact that docters were not guaranteeing her health, she decided to proceed with the pregnancy. Despite the complication her AVM produced which included: severe headaches, dizzyness, a higher risk pregnancy, and stress rupturing a brain vein. The docters advised her to not work, but that was not an option for Patty who had her 3 children depending on her for finacial security.  On December 18, 2017 Patty suffered a severe head bleed that left her unconscious, and she was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where she was in the ICU, in whete they proceded to treat her head hemorrhage by draining the blood flooding in her brain. After a catscan and a couple of days, Patty was finally stable and docters advised to terminate her pregnancy, therefore; lowering the chances of another head bleed which would leave her perminatly disabled or dead. Patty's pregnancy was sadly terminated on December 28, 2017. On January 11, 2018 she had a seizure which caused her brain to bleed again, this time the bleed was of a stronger magnitude and left Patty in a state of coma. We are asking for your help to cover Patty's medical expenses and to help her children in this very unfortunate time of need. Thank you for reading and thank you in advance for your donations.
