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,
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.

Jeff thanks everyone for all their financial and emotional support. As of today Danielle has been fairly stable. Unfortunately she still has not woken up but has opened her eyes a few times which is very good news. She is intermittently breathing on her own but still needs the assistance of a breathing tube and feeding tube. Please keep Jeff, Danielle and their family in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you.

An update on Danielle's condition. As of today Jeff has shared with us that as per the MRI that was performed yesterday the doctors are amazed at how little the brain was effected by the stroke. None the less there is damage whether physical, speech or brain, they will not know the extent of it until she wakes from the coma. They are currently determining the right balance of medications to take her out of sedation and keep her blood pressure at a safe level. It is going to be a long slow process. Thank you all for your generosity and please keep sharing the post/link on facebook and social media. We have exceeded our goal but we all know that with the cost of therapy, healthcare and childcare and neither of them working, what we've collected is not nearly enough. Thanks again for your generosity and keep spreading the word so we can help Danielle recover and get back home to her newborn Gia and son Joey.
