In the month of January 2020, she was diagnosed with a cerebral stroke, rendering her right hand and speech unusable. Ever since then, the family has been burdened with heavy medical expenses to help her fight the onset of this stroke. This was further complicated with the lockdown in Mumbai due to COVID-19 and the unavailability of caregivers, speech therapists and physiotherapists, further delaying her recovery process. Moreover, she couldn't see her friends and family as visitations were prohibited.
However, Jill was persistent and began walking around the house without the help of another person. Until more devastation struck and she had an epileptic fit. She was rushed to hospital a second time but has been stable ever since. She was discharged but her ability to walk has diminished again. Jill has been bedridden again and for someone who was constantly on the move, this was a hard pill for her to swallow.
With all that has happened, it has taken a toll on her health, both physically and mentally. The battle has been fought thus far for 9 and a half months.
It is in this state that we as the Tauro family would now like to reach out to you - family, friends and well-wishers. You can help us get Jill out of this by supporting us financially. All donations will go towards covering for the enormous expenditure taken to treat Jill, namely:
• Speech Therapy
We cannot do this without you. But we believe that there is power in teamwork. Even the smallest contribution can help us help Jill fight off this hurdle. She will come back stronger and healthier, with many more years to live. Thank you for your time and efforts in helping Jill recover.
