Jade DeLucia, a 4-year-old girl from Iowa was on the verge of dying. She caught flu and as a result of it is now blind.
After the deadly incident, her parents gave a message for everyone that ‘get your child vaccinated.’
It was two weeks before Christmas that the child caught the flu. She did not receive a flu vaccination this season. Jade was admitted to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital. In intensive care at the hospital, she fought hard to save her life.
Amanda Philips said that if she can stop one child from getting sick, she wants to do that. She also added that it is a terrible thing to witness your child suffer so much.
Jade’s physicians, Dr. Theresa Czech said that she was lucky enough to be alive. Her parents had to miss their work to take care of their daughter. They are facing a huge amount of medical bills so they have started a GoFundMe page.
