The Family & Friends of Jamari Player are uniting to raise money to help with his on going battle to be a healthy Happy Baby!

Jamari has had a rough start in life but has had a huge support group through this journey. When Jamari was 2 weeks old he was diagnosed with pertussis (whooping cough). It was a rough 15 days in the ICU at Florida Hospital for Children. He was on a ventilator to assist him with breathing and his heart rate was constantly dropping. After a rough time in the Hospital he was discharged on December 25th 2011. Jamari was doing great until he was readmitted on January 4th 2012 with RSV. He was in the hospital for 11 more days with serious breathing issues. He was again discharged on January 15th 2012 which is his fathers birhday. Jamari was only home for 4 days before he could barely breath at all. He was readmitted to FL Hospital for Children for respiratory distress. The doctors did not know exactly what was causing this issue but worked hard to find out. After being in the ICU for over 9 days and trying everything to get him the oxygen he needed he went down to surgery. It was found that Jamari had so much scar tissue from having a breathing tube while he had pertussis that he could barely breath at all and was shocking to all the doctors that he was actually breathing. jamari now has on going issues because of how sick he was when he was so much younger. He has 5 or more doctors appointments a month and every time he gets sick he is admitted to the hospital. Jamari is now 10 months old and it is a constant struggle for me and his father to keep up with all of Jamari's needs and the needs of our family. Between traveling to orlando several times a month and missing work due to Hospital stays. Help Support Jamari's road to recovery. He is the only child i know that after every thing he has been through he can still keep a smile on his face at all times.
