Danny needs your help!

On September 20, 2016 my husband Danny Phung underwent a Kausch-Whipple Procedure, a major surgical operation to remove the head of the pancreas, the first part of the small intestine (duodenum), the gallbladder and the bile duct.  During this procedure he went into cardiac arrest and didn’t receive oxygen for 14 minutes in which the hospital announced a Code Blue situation.  Less than a month later he underwent another 10 surgeries in a span of 3 weeks due to postoperative complications. He suffered just about every complication and predisposed risk from internal bleeding at the surgical areas, infections of the incision areas, leakage from the bile duct connection to now being unresponsive to all five senses.  In one family meeting with the operating doctor, he mentioned my husband was “brain dead/damage” and then realized what he had just said and renounced for the record. The hospital has recommended TIRR Memorial Hermann hospital which treats people with a range of disabilities from complex conditions like that in which my husband is in for a more in-depth evaluation of the brain.  Unfortunately,  we can not cover the $3,500/ day medical expense. On July of 2017 my husband was discharged from the hospital and is now home, bedridden and unresponsive.

I am a mother of three trying to keep things together financially and emotionally.  At times it is overwhelming caring for my husband, my kids and my work. I am the sole income of my family and have exhausted all savings and sources.  This unexpected occurrence has taken a toll in my life. It’s been almost two years but my family and I still have hope for him. Any amount of prayer or help financially you can donate is very much and sincerely appreciated.  It would mean a lot to my husband and family as his family meant the world to him.

Thank you for the support
