Orange County, California – A social media influencer from California is fighting for her life after she developed a brain aneurysm while she was nine months pregnant.
According to GoFundMeJames was just a week after her due date when she suffered a ruptured aneurysm, which led to massive bleeding in the brain.
James had to undergo an emergency caesarean section while undergoing brain surgery at the same time. She has since undergone five separate brain procedures and remains in a medically induced coma.
Her family said she was expected to remain in the intensive care unit for weeks.
“If Jackie and the baby arrived a few minutes later at the hospital, we would likely lose them. But instead, Jackie continues to fight for her life every day and we are optimistic that she can overcome the odds by being surrounded by the right specialists and treatment methods. While the road will be long We are committed to bringing Jackie home to her daughter and husband,” read her GoFundMe description.
The fundraiser aims to help James and her family with medical bills and other related costs.
It has so far collected more than $263,000.
