Support for sweet Gabriella

Please help support Ralph, Erin, Gabriella & Lucia during Gabriellas tough journey these last 3 weeks. Unfortunately, 3 weeks ago in the blink of an eye Ralph & Erin's whole world was flipped upside down when they learned there 21 month old daughter was diagnosed with a brain tumor on her pituitary gland. Devastated to find this out, being the parents they are, they spent 3 long days in different hospitals/ hotels to make sure they were getting the best care for their baby girl. With help and advice from family, they went ahead with Weill Cornell Hospital under Surgeon Dr. Souewdiane care. As her 5 hour brain surgery took place, you can only imagine he her parents and family were feeling. Since then, surgery was successful with removing the tumor, but unfortunately Gabriella has hit some bumps in the road which has left her taking a much longer time to recover. Her parents and Erin & Ralph have not left her side for one minute through out this entire process. It has been extremely difficult for them emotional, mentally, physically and financially. Leaving their other twin daughter at home, and Erin being 5 months pregnant it has been extremely taxing on them. In the end, all we want is for Gabriella to have a fully recovery and live the heathiest life possible. However, being both and Erin and Ralph will not leave her side, they have been without pay for the last 3 weeks.  Unfortunatley that will only continue until our sweet Gabriella has a full recovery and her parents are able to work again. Any small donation will help with thier family expenses, future medical bills , medications for Gabriella, and her future appointments that will take place in NYC. If you know this family at all, you know Erin & Ralph are the kindest most generous loving people you could ever meet. This whole situation is truly tragic, but we know Gabriella will pull trough. We ask you continue to pray for Gabriella and for any small donation to help this family through such a devastating time. We cannot thank you all in advance from the bottom of our hearts
