Friends and family of a 27-year-old Belleville mother are raising funds on her behalf after she suffered a stroke that left her unable to work and pay for medical treatment.
Delilah Crespo is now blind in one eye, has lost use of one leg and has speech problems. Unable to work and not eligible for disability having just recently started a job, Crespo can't afford physical therapy her doctors say is necessary for her recovery.
"No one knows the full effect that this stroke will have on her. So we need to act fast to get her the help she needs," organizers of a GoFundMe campaign wrote of Crespo, who is mother to a two-year-old son, Damian Jr.
