Help Bring Danielle Home To Her Family


Friends and family celebrated when Danielle and Jeff got married, and a year later welcomed baby Joey to the world, now 2 years old. They rejoiced when they discovered a year later that they were expecting their second child. On December 27th, 2017 Gia Rose Guido was born and lovingly welcomed by her family. Tragedy has struck the family, complications have occurred, and now this hard working, independent couple, son and newborn baby girl need your help.

On Sunday, January 7th the family attended their first photo shoot with now 10 day old Gia Rose. During the photo shoot Danielle still recovering from her c-section experienced tingling in her arms and suffered a thunderclap headache and was rushed by ambulance to St. Joseph's hospital. Danielle went into emergency surgery with bleeding on the brain and then was put into a medically induced coma. As of today the swelling on the brain went down which is a great sign and the medical team plans on doing a die test to see if there is more blockage to the brain. We are waiting on medical results but the doctors have expressed the potential of long term side effects affecting her physical health and will need an unsure amount of rehabilitation. Weeks of close observation in the intensive care unit (ICU) will be required to ensure her successful recovery.

Even the best insurance barely covers the whole cost of a complicated hospital birth like a C-Section. Add an emergency brain surgery 10 days later leading to weeks in the ICU and perhaps months of recovery time. This young family will find themselves in financial crisis.  

Jeff will be the sole caregiver to his small son Joey and his newborn baby girl now home gaining strength.  Jeff will be out of work as Danielle continues to fight for her life.  Even with regular visits the ongoing separation from his wife, is heartbreaking, and the financial pressure builds as he wonders if he will need help to care for their son and newborn baby, and when they will be able to return to work.

Please contribute now to help with the ongoing costs of maintaining the family’s medical insurance and covering their deductibles, medication, child care and transportation help, and the financial gap that will continue to grow until Jeff is able to return to work.

Hello everyone,
Sorry we haven't sent out an update on Danielle's status for a while but we've been waiting for some substantial improvements before doing so. So since the last update Danielle is now standing with assistance and recently started taking some steps. She no longer connected to any machines so she is able to breathe and eat on her own. She has shown significant strength on her right side but is struggling on her left side. She had cranialplastic surgery a few weeks ago and is feeling whole again. Jeff has also brought in Joey and Gia to see her which has lifted her spirit tremendously and has increased her will to work harder. She is speaking clearly but softly and the trerapists are confident her voice will get back to normal. Jeff would like to once again thank everyone for their support and is anxiously waiting to get Danielle home. Thanks again, The Guidos.
Strength is in my smile...

Hi everyone,
An update from Jeff regarding Danielle.

"She's doing better. She's been communicating by writing or typing on her ipad or phone. I don't notice any difference in her so I am ecstatic about that progress. Her right arm is pretty much back to full use and her right leg is moving now. The left side is taking a little longer to get strong. Her mouth and face muscles moving more and more each day."

Thanks again for everyone's support. Hopefully she will be home soon.

Hello everyone,
A quick update on Danielle's health. She has left the hospital and was admitted into the Kessler Rehab Institute in Saddle Brook. That's a good sign. Unfortunately she still is not able to move or speak on her own but will be receiving extensive therapy to get her on her way. She is responsive to touch and sound but is unable to communicate. Once again Jeff thanks everyone from the bottom of his heart and is very grateful for the love and support he has been receiving from friends, family and community.
