On March 13, 2018, we received the worst phone call any parent/sibling/fiancé/friend can imagine. Neetu was in critical condition and we needed to rush to the hospital immediately. As she was walking to work in downtown Philadelphia, she felt a shortness of breath in her chest. “It’s just my asthma,” she thought, and tried to push through, walking and losing more of her balance with each step.

A good samaritan, who was driving on their way to work, saw Neetu faint and immediately stopped their car to help and call 911. The ambulance arrived right after she collapsed, and while being lifted into the ambulance, Neetu called a friend. She was crying. She was alone. She was terrified. She told her friend that she was going to a hospital, and when she realized she did not know where she would be headed to, she cried on the phone to her friend. Suddenly, everything went dark.

She went into cardiac arrest. Her heart stopped beating;  blood stopped flowing; and her body shut down. It's nothing short of a miracle that she was in the ambulance, as CPR was administered immediately, which temporarily kept her blood flowing. If Neetu was not in an ambulance, she would not be here today.

In the ER, doctors were able to bring our angel back to us with the aid of many machines and medications. She was immediately intubated and placed on a ventilator to help her breath. Additionally, she was placed on a machine to provide her body with oxygenated blood. Once her family arrived to the ER, Neetu was being transferred to the cardiac ICU. Hours later, they were able to find the cause of her cardiac arrest.

Neetu had two major blood clots in her lungs. These clots put so much pressure that her heart stopped. From what doctors have told the family, only 4%-6% of patients survive a blood clot of this size in their lungs.

Currently, Neetu is still intubated within the cardiac ICU and under the care of an amazing team for whom we are forever indebted to. Neetu just recently celebrated her 30th birthday on March 9. She was also in the midst of planning her wedding which is set for July 2018. She met the love of her life, Devin Luqman, while in law school. They have been together for 7 years and were happily planning for the next step of their lives together.

We need your help. Neetu was blessed to receive medical care from one of the best hospitals in the US. However, this quality care comes with a cost. The recovery from this medical event is immense, and much more than we ever anticipated. Neetu will be placed in inpatient care for the foreseeable future. Once she exits, physical therapy, many outpatient follow ups, and other medical care awaits. Doctors have told the family that the total recovery time lies between several months to one year. She has a long road of recovery ahead of her. 

 Any financial help, prayers and well wishes would truly be a blessing. Thanks everyone.

Neetu wants to share a link to her blog, in which she will be documenting her recovery. We still have a long way to go, but we are glad to have everyone's support on this journey!

Hello everyone. Thank you for your continued support. We appreciate all of you. Here’s an update about Neetu.
Neetu has been moved to a rehab facility in New Jersey. She has been here for 3 weeks. She has built up a lot of strength and endurance for day to day activities. She has began to talk to us and hold up her trademark sarcastic and sassy conversations. She has been able to eat and walk with assistance. She’s made great progress in this short time. Below is a message from Neetu:

“I want to thank everyone for your love and support. I appreciate everyone who has had reached out to me and my family. Thank you for being part of my journey with your kind words of motivation. I hope to see you all soon.”

We would like to thank you all for your support. Your kind words, love, support and prayers have really helped us during this time. It is good to know that Neetu has touched the hearts of so many people. It has been a long 3 weeks and a lot has happened.

First and foremost, we would like all of you know to that Neetu is still in the hospital. However, she is alert, responsive, and is able to have a degree of conversation at this point. Neetu’s body has been pushed beyond it’s limitations. There are some residual effects from her traumatic experience and procedures. However, Neetu is surprising every doctor with her ability to overcome most obstacles. She has truly proven she is a miracle.

After appropriate procedures and treatments, Neetu’s heart and lungs have recovered. We have been assured that both functions are back to normal, which is truly amazing. Over the course of these 3 weeks, we have had many moments of uncertainty, along with many ups and downs. However, her road to recovery is a lot clearer now.

Because Neetu has been in the hospital for an extended period of time, specifically within the ICU, she has been affected not only physically, but mentally as well. Both of these effects are common within ICU settings. Through rehab, she will be able to gain physical strength and capability.

The next stage for Neetu is for her to receive intensive therapy at a rehabilitation center. She is making daily progress, but this road will not be short. This will take time. Neetu has been a fighter and has already beaten many incredible odds. She continues to progress daily. We do not have an anticipated time of complete recovery yet, but we promise to keep everyone updated with her progress.

We anticipate that Neetu will be moved out of the hospital and into a rehabilitation facility sometime this week. We know many have reached out for this information, so we will let you all know when and where Neetu is able to see you all as soon as we find out! Thank you all once again. We have been humbled, and are grateful for all of you.
