A young girl called Gia is a big fan of Bebe Rexha and her music, and says that music is a good therapy. On Facebook Gia’s story was shared:
On 4th of July, Gia was being a regular kid and having fun waiting for fireworks. One moment she was swimming, the next moment she could not make a fist. Within minutes Gia went completely limp and was paralyzed. No injury had occurred that we could determine. Her father immediately rushed her to the hospital where Doctors hurried to keep her alive, as she had lost the ability to breathe on her own. I received the call that all of us parents dread. I was in Jacksonville with friends for the holiday and I don’t even remember driving 4 hours to Tampa. In the last two weeks that Gia has been here at St Joseph’s Children, she has been treated for Acute Transverse Myelitis and ADEM. Doctors still do not have a final diagnosis as none of them have ever seen this disease. Yesterday, Gia regained the ability to move her right wrist and shrug her shoulder. We still have a long road to recovery. As we work towards getting her healthy enough to be moved out of PICU and hopefully into an in-patient rehab, I now realize that I will need some help financially. I have been reluctant to ask for this help. My amazing employer has granted me FMLA but I will still need to be able to pay bills while I am not working. Being two hours away from home has some financial hardships as well. (Source)
