PATERSON, N.J. – The community is rallying around a Paterson father who suffered a seizure and cardiac arrest after enjoying Thanksgiving with his family.
Isidro Ramirez “enjoyed every minute he got on Thanksgiving day being with family,” then had a seizure in his sleep and went into cardiac arrest early Friday morning, according to a GoFundMe page created to raise funds for his family.
He remained in the hospital in critical condition Wednesday, his son Mag wrote on the page.
“He is the main provider in our household and pays most bills. It’s a huge impact right now,” Mag wrote, adding that the family of seven also has a baby on the way.
“I’m just making the attempt to have my family secure and for my dad to have shelter and food for the day he is released,” he wrote.
More than $4,000 had been raised by Thursday afternoon. CLICK HERE to learn more or donate.
