Baby Julianna Grace was born on Sept 30,2012, The family and friends of Jacqueline Boccio are raising money to help for medical expenses.

Julianna Grace was due to be born on October 20,2012 . To our surprise on September 29th her mother Jacqueline noticed the baby has not moved. Scared and unsure what to do, Jacqueline rushed herself to the hospital,where her Obstetrician admitted her.

After many hours Baby Julianna was emergency cesarean section, She was delivered weighing in at 11 pounds 2 ounces and 20 inches long.

From that moment until today, Julianna has been on a respirator fighting for her life. To date the Doctors still can not figure why this happened and why it was missed during Jacqueline's' pregnancy.

Baby Julianna Grace was born with Cardiomyopathy, Enlarged Liver, Enlarged Pancreas along with these abnormalities are many other complications.

Julianna was airlifted from Betsey Johnson Hospital in Dunn,North Carolina to UNC in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, where she has been in the PICU since.

Julianna;s Doctors have decided to perform her first surgical operation on her Pancreas.This will be the first of many possible operations that Baby Julianna will have to have. It is still unsure whether they will remove partial or total. This will be determined at the time of the operation. After the operation she will be there for several weeks or months to recover and stabilize.

Surgery is scheduled tentatively for the last week in October 2012 ,She will be transferred via airplane from Chapel Hill Hospital in North Carolina to Children's Hospital in Philadelphia,

This has been a very difficult time for the young parents. We are asking for your support.
