On Thursday, May 2 our friend and beloved nanny to our daughter, Laura Tufino, collapsed in pain and was rushed to hospital. Within a few hours they discovered that her abdomen was full of blood due to a ruptured spleen. Thankfully, the bleed was located and, even though she lost 3 liters of blood internally, her spleen was removed and she is expected to make a full recovery. If her transport to hospital had happened 1 hour later, the doctors say she would have died. 

Still, the road to recovery will be a tough one and could take as long as 3 months. Needless to say, Laura will be unable to work during this time and as the primary provider for her 4 children, we want her to be able to focus on fully recovering and not worry about money. 

Any help to support her during this difficult time will be incredibly appreciated .


El jueves 2 de mayo, nuestra amiga y amada niñera de nuestra hija, Laura Tufino, se desmayó de dolor y fue trasladada de urgencia al hospital. En pocas horas, descubrieron que su abdomen estaba lleno de sangre debido a la ruptura del bazo. Afortunadamente, se localizó la hemorragia y, aunque perdió 3 litros de sangre internamente, le extirparon el bazo y se espera que se recupere completamente. Si su transporte al hospital hubiera ocurrido 1 hora después, los médicos dicen que ella habría muerto.

Aún así, el camino hacia la recuperación será difícil y Laura no podrá trabajar por un mes. Como proveedor principal de sus 4 hijos, queremos que ella pueda enfocarse en recuperarse por completo y no preocuparse por el dinero.

Cualquier ayuda para apoyarla durante este difícil momento será increíblemente apreciada.

Laura was able to go home yesterday night which is great! Her insurance covers her hospital bills but physical therapy and loss of income is on her.
Please help reach our goal so she can take the time she needs to heal.

In some great news Laura has heard that she could be ready to get back to work in as soon as 4 weeks! If we're able to reach our goal we can be sure that Laura will be at 100% before going back to work. Please contribute if you can!
