Please Take A Minute And Lend A Helping Hand

My cousin Dorien and his wife Jojo's 3 month old baby girl Jordyn woke up to her normal active happy self on May 21st. Eating watching her cartoons, smiling, laughing.. it was any other day. Out of the blue she was in a frozen state and had trouble breathing.. they had to call 911 right away while keeping her head under cold water while waiting on Mamakating Ambulance services to arrive. She was then rushed in an ambulance to Orange Regional Medical Center where they immediately put a breathing tube in her while waiting airlift transfer to Westchester's Maria Fereri's. Jordyn then was rushed down to Westchester. The hospital will not let both mom and dad to be with Jordyn because of the covid19 which makes it real hard to make these life changing decisions regarding her care. They have to swap out to even see her. The children's hospital does have an onsite 'Ronald McDonald House of
Greater Hudson Valley' which is a hotel/apartment like place where parents can stay free of charge while their child is being hospitalized but once again because of covid19 its closed to parents because they would rather shelter doctors from out of the area there instead of parents who are in dire need. These doctors make 6-7+ figures and they give them 1st priority and people like my cousin and his wife who are accumulating outrageous hotel fees that they cannot continuously afford. Leaving Jordyn in Westchester is not at all an option they have to be there as close as possible around the clock to make choices in regards to her care and they really need all the help they can possibly get. A family member helped financially to help them reserve a room for a week but between traveling paying $100+ nightly on a hotel for as long as the baby will be in need of the care from WMC all help
has ran dry. As far as for Jordyn's medical bills that are accumulating by the day.. not to mention an airlift bill. That's still just the beginning. We are trying to raise as much as we can to help with rehabilitation for jordyn as well as housing too keep her parents close too her during this entire event.   Thank you for your time.                        GOD BLESS
