Sasa's Recovery Fund

Little Sasa was born prematurely and fought for her life.  Now, she is back in the PICU, fighting for her life again, after falling victim to RSV and a secondary bacterial infection.  I cannot imagine what her family is going through, much less the financial burden that will face them as she heals.  Please, imagine how you would want people to help you, if you were in their position.  That is why I started this gofundme.  Please, donate whatever you can, and go tell your own kids how much you love them.  Thank you so much.  

Sasa is in the PICU, fighting RSV.  As of Jan. 20th, she is on repsiratory support, requiring 50% oxygen.  In addition, she is on antibiotics, sedatives, narcotics, paralytic, and treatments to promote bowel movement and try to keep her comfy.  Her kidney, liver and heart functions are still good.  

She is expected to be in the PICU for 2-4 weeks, and in the hospital for some time after that.   Due to the extended stays, many medical expenses and other expenses will be incurred.  

If you live in the area, if you are well, please consider sitting with Sasa after she's moved from the PICU, to give her family a break.   You could send gift cards to the family, and there are other thoughtful ways you could help. 

While this platform (and all the others I investigated) are free to use, there is a fee for donating by credit card or debit card (2.9% plus 30 cents), and direct donations are only accepted via credit or debit cards.  If you decide you don't want to donate via gofundme for this reason, I completely understand.  You can still help the Desai's by donating gift cards directly to them.  Press the contact button, and you will be put in touch with me.
