Support the D’Antonio Family

Val and Troy D’Antonio are facing every parents worse nightmare.   On Thursday, Val had taken her children TJ and Emma from Long Island to Pennsylvania to spend a day on the lake with family.  Emma, who is 6 years old, started complaining that she could not feel her right leg and Val had to rush her to a hospital.  The Dr. at the local hospital felt the situation was serious, and had Emma airlifted 2.5 hours away to the Children's Hospital in Danville, PA.  Emma was placed in ICU, and since that time a team of doctors are trying to determine if Emma may have Guillen Barre or acute demylating Encephalitis (adem.)  They decided Emma will be receiving Plasmapherisis for the next ten days; and we are all praying that the treatment will begin to offer relief to the symptoms, as Emma was experiencing loss of feeling/movement in other limbs.  

Aside from prayers that we are asking be sent to to Emma, Val, Troy and Emma's big brother TJ; we are asking that everyone please consider making a donation towards this gofundme account that we would like to present to Val and Troy.  We expect that they will be left with residual hospital bills following the treatments that Emma is receiving given the high cost, and would like to help alleviate some of their financial stress.  

Thanks in advance for your support.
