Prayers for Fiorini Family
If anyone knows this family, they know that they are the most loving, helpful, and compassionate family there is. There isn't anything that they wouldn't do for anyone.
Early Saturday morning around 12 a.m., The Fiorini home went ablaze while Angel and the 3 children ...Rosalie 18 months old, Vinny 3 years old, and Gianna 7 years old were sleeping. Angel woke up from her sleep to the smell of smoke and the house in flames. She grabbed the two younger children, and got them outside to safety. She went back into the burning home to get her oldest daughter Gianna. Upon getting Gianna closer to safety, she eventually collapsed in the doorway. At this point, they were both still in the home. A man who happened to be passing by, stopped to pull Angel from the burning home when she was unconscious. He went back in another time to get Gianna and eventually brought them both to safety.
The two younger children sustained more minimal burns and smoke inhalation were admitted to Spokane local hospital where Aaron (the father and husband) remained with them. They have been discharged from the hospital late Sunday afternoon.
Upon discharge Aaron rushed to Seattle to be with his wife Angel and their oldest daughter Gianna as they were both airlifted to Harborview Medical Center with severe burns and trauma. They remain in CRITICAL CONDITION but are slowly showing signs of progression.
Angel sustained 43% of her body with 2nd and 3rd degree burns. Gianna 14% of her body with 2nd degree burns. It has been a balancing act for the physicans, nurses, and specialists but we have faith that they will continue to heal as expected.
The famiy has literally LOST EVERYTHING except for a few family photographs and most importantly EACHOTHER!!!
We have set up GoFundMe Donation site here and ask the family, friends, and community for their support. Our goal is to help the Fiorini Family of 5 obtain a new residence, along with the essentials they will need to get by for these next upcoming months of healing and transition.
Healing is going to be a long process and any amount of support is greatly appreciated. If you are not able to donate monetarily, you can continue to help by showing your love and support for this is what makes them stronger every day that goes by. Prayers are also needed for the family, friends, community, medical responders, providers, firefighters, healthcare professionals, etc.
We have also set up a facebook page for donations for lightly used and new household items. Here you can also find fundraisers and benefit information on dates and locations to upcoming events in the Seattle and Spokane areas.
Please feel free to share this to your social media accounts as well.
God Bless you all and again THANK YOU FOR YOUR LOVE and SUPPORT!
We can't thank you all enough who have shared our story and donated allowing us to get through these crucial months of healing and rebuilding.
Gianna has made a full recovery with some minor scaring on her arms and face and a larger more painful scar across her belly, this was a third degree burn that was healing quickly enough to not do a skin graft. Overall her emotional trauma seems to be subsiding and she is becoming herself again.
I, Angel, have healed quicker than could have ever been expected. My lung damage was very severe which caused many complications during my stay in Harborview, however, My team of doctors truly saved my life and I will forever be grateful to them. My entire back was grafted on Nov. 9th and both upper arms grafted on Nov. 23rd. I was released from the hospital on Dec. 2nd after only 5 weeks.
My grafts have been healing wonderfully but there is still a lot of pain as the scars thicken and my skin is very tight. Staying obedient with my stretching is crucial for range of motion. I have about another year before I can expect to be back to what used to be my normal.
Thank you all again your generosity is unbelievable... God Bless!
Thank you all for the donations. Aaron and Angel are extremely greatful. I have had a few requests regarding sending checks/money orders directly to the Fiorini family. I spoke with Aaron and if you would like to mail funds directly to them you can mail to:
P.o box 1063

Thank you for all the support and kind words!!
Angel saw Gianna yesterday and today. They were both happy to see eachother! Gianna's eyes are now open which means she is retaining more of her fluids where they need to go now, great sign. They are both making a great recovery but still in great pain.
It is truly a miracle at how fast they are recovering although they're still not out of the red zone yet.
Angel is able to walk over to Gianna's room now, and I just spoke with the nurse that said that Gianna is now walking over to her moms room. Angel is eating regular food and Gianna was struggling a bit with this still, so they are still feeding her via tube.
They are still in ICU but progressing as expected. I will be up there tomorrow to give a more official update for tomorrow evening. I haven't been up there since late Sunday/ Monday night.
Thank you again for your love, prayers, and support and also to the great team at Harborview and everyone else involved!
I will be making a Carebridge site to post regular updates so the community can stay connected to their progress as well. I will provide this information once it is completed!
I'm so glad you all were spared! What an amazing life story. -I had to yell for help to save my sister engulfed in flames from a spark that blew up in a ball of fire... at age 4/5 we went through so much. And still do in adult years- Please reach the PHEONIX SOCIETY There are complimentary burn camps in the summer for children affected by fire- which will help your children. find: 'I AM ME' Burn Camp. We didn't have the therapies readily available back then but I would highly recommend it for your family. The Pheonix Rises out of the Ashes renewed..... God Bless Adding a donation soon will keep your family in mind and heart!
Please set up an account at bank also. Some people like to just use banks.
There is no fire that burns hotter , then a mother's love for her children . .from the ashes rose a warrior . ..prayers for you &family
I am so glad you all survived, thank god. My family escaped a house fire oct 5 2016 that began just before 230am so i have been in similar shoes. You did awesome. I hope your healing has gone well.
I can't imagine the battle of recovery, however what a gift that your children survived. I hope that your courage extends beyond saving your children to the bravery you may need now. You are in our prayers.
Don't know you but I read your story! You are a strong amazing women! Praying for you and your daughter! I hope you have a speedy recovery
God bless you and your beautiful family. So sorry you're going through this. I'm praying for y'all
I just cleaned out my daughters clothes of things she no longer wears. They are size 8 pants and 7/8 tops. If these could be of use someone please message me and I will mail them to this family. Thank you!
Shared in Canada Ontario you are a hero angel I'd do the same for my babies your story had me crying I hope you and your daughter recover fast and comfortably god bless you
Prayers goes out to this family. I wish for the best of luck and hope you all can get anything and everything you need with all the donations we have to offer to this family.. thank you
Perhaps her parents or inlaws could set up the account at the local bank? Her husband? I didn't realize this site takes a portion of all donations, but then again, it makes sense. There's more than meets the eye of what is needed to provide for these kinds of donation sites. Good luck to her especially and of course her children! So much to go thru but they are young and other than photos from the local papers and probably some friends, that's what they'll relate to, not memories, except for the 8-year-old, and her Mom!
Also please go to my account, I am a single mother to a daughter with a chronic illness who just had surgery and a son with a disability who just had surgery 2 days ago, and my only car I had caught on fire thank God no one was hurt. If you cannot donate, please share... look up Tamika Deas for my campaign.
Praying for you and your family
I went to the benefit at the Roadhouse and donated that way, they had an awesome dinner, donations at the door, an auction and people were giving all night long!! My thoughts are with the family, especially mom and daughter..hoping for a fast recovery. This hits close to home because this could be any of us, as a single mom I have dreams about this stuff. I woulda done the same thing this mom did.
