Little Jack has a really rare neuromuscular disorder called SMA. Among other things, SMA is makes his muscles weak and leaves him really susceptible to pneumonia.
Unfortunately, on Friday September 17th, Jack started deteriorating... rapidly. He was rushed to Sick Kids hospital where a team of medical professionals has stabilized him and started putting him back on the track to recovery. But it's a slow, drawn out process.They had to intubate him in order to give him a fighting chance, and for SMA babies, it's a real struggle to get them back off the ventilator.
Recovery is going to be an uphill battle and it may be weeks before he's able to go home -- if he's able to go home.
Ronald McDonald House has a space inside Sick Kids where we can stay. But even with my housing covered, we're incurring a lot of expenses staying here. Eating, paying for parking, toiletries and other sundries all add up. I am missing out on my income and we still will have bills to pay no matter what the outcome of this ordeal is.
That's why we're asking you to open your heart and help out in any way you can.
