This is a video that my niece, Jennifer Kordecki Johnson, created and placed on youtube 2 months ago to raise money so she could have open heart surgery.
She had a disease called HOCM - Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy - She was just 30 years old and had two small children - Mikayla (33 months) and Malykai (18 months) whom she called her "heartbeats". Her only wish was for her heart to be strong enough to see her babies grow up.
Jennifer had her surgery, Dec. 14th by a team of talented doctors and surgeons, but she experieced serious complications. She underwent two additional surgeries over the next three days and, in the end, her heart never recovered and she went into total organ failure.
We took her off life support Monday (Dec. 17th) at 10:10pm and she went home to the care of God at 10:17pm with her Mom and Aunt Laura holding her, while her guardian angel, Auntie "Ei", stood outside her door.
Jennifer's husband Robert is devastated and while we have been doing our best to support him emotionally, financially and spiritually, her children have short term and long term care needs we can't meet. We have created this fundraising page to collect donations to provide for the immediate care. We also are setting up a trust fund for their future educational needs.
In addition to indigogo, people can also contribute via PayPal to KaylaandKai@aol.com. 100% of the funds raised will go toward their immediate care and future educations.
Anything that you can give would be greatly appreciated. Our hearts are broken by this tragic death, but our sole mission is to take care of these two children who have lost their mother in the days days before Christmas.
God Bless and thank you.
