Jamie is an 18 month old who was delivered at 31 weeks. She has suffered from multiple cardiac arrests, is G-tube dependent, and was hospitalized for the first 3 months of her life in Puerto Rico. She went home for a brief 3 months, but was re-hospitalized 3 hours away from home from 12/16-8/17. After hurricanes Maria and Irma hit Puerto Rico, Jamie and her mother relocated to Wilkes-Barre PA, leaving behind her father and 2 brothers. Finally in 11/17, Jamie’s father and brothers joined them in PA and they plan on starting a new life there. Doctors are hopeful Jamie will be discharged to her new home in January 2018 and hope to participate in the hospital to home ventilator program.
Pennies From Heaven paid $750 on 12/17/17 to assist them in the purchase of a new ventilator & more. Jamie’s family has had a difficult time and they are grateful for any outside support they receive.
