For those of you who didn't see Jessica's story "Counting On A Coma" on Channel 7 - Fox News Miami, or were having difficulty getting to the link, my husband set up the video in You Tube.
Just CLICK on the following link to see Jessica:
Hola from Mexico,
Special Thanks go out to ALL for a successful GCFD Fundraiser!!!
In 1991 my husband David joined the Garden City Fire Department as a volunteer fireman. He wanted to serve in his community and also, because he was an only child, he thought he could have the "brother" he never had! However, he never imagined that by joining the fire department it would immediately gave him over a 100" brothers" and even a" sister"!
The fire department is a true "brotherhood". They have been there countless times for us over the past few years. First with David's illness and now with Jessica's unbelievable quest!
The fundraiser that they organized Saturday night was successful because of the bond these fire fighters have for each other. I would like to thank the following fire department personnel for making it so successful:
Special thanks to Chief Bill Graham for allowing it to be held, to Chief Bill Castoro for being the guiding hand behind the whole event and to Chief Joe Nadolny, Captain Matt Tittler (and Viki), Ex-Chief Len Rivera, ex-capt Frank Diamond, Greg Young, Jen Marinello and Jake Finneran, Dave Hroncich, Andy Smith, Mike Reale, All Of The Juniors and Tom Riccio, Karen Castoro and Marianne Quinn. Also, thanks to Pat Server & Angel D'Antonio for their help!
And, of course, thanks to all of YOU - our friends - who came to the firehouse to support us in our time of need. Words cannot express how grateful we are to all of you! I was so happy to "Skype" from Mexico and see you all to thank you personally! Jessica says thank you so much for all the outpouring of love, She heard you all clap for her!
Remember this: When Jessica and I finally leave Mexico and return to the USA, it will be because of all of you! Whether you donated in Garden City or Naples, both fundraisers were a huge success and we will be forever grateful for all you have done! May God bless everyone with good health and happiness always. And, if there is anything that we can ever do for you - just ask - and we will be there for you!!!
All our love to all,
UPDATE ON JESSICA:
Yesterday was another eventful day here in Mexico. Right before the fundraiser was to begin, Jessica had to be brought down to the ICU for a procedure due to an infection in her J-tube. She is back up in her room and because of a low grade fever, Dr. Luigi put her on antibiotics and decided to give the J-tube feedings a break and just keep Jessica on TPN and whatever she can tolerate by mouth. As I have said before, it is always an adventure when Jessica is in a hospital! Please pray for a speedy resolution to this infection!
