The Jerry Baldino of Bridgeport, CT Fundraiser GoFundMe

Hope! Join the Heartwarming GoFundMe Fundraiser for Jerry Baldino’s Battle. You Won’t Believe the Impact YOU Can Make! Be Part of a Miracle!

A heartfelt appeal to family, friends, and the community at large to rally together in support of her first cousin, Jerry Baldino, through a crucial fundraiser. The purpose of this initiative is to alleviate the financial burden faced by Jerry and his wife Barbara Jean, who are grappling with a series of severe health challenges.

Jerry Baldino’s journey began seven years ago when he was diagnosed with lung cancer, a battle he has been courageously fighting with ongoing maintenance therapy. In addition to this, he faced the challenges of Lyme Disease, necessitating a hip replacement, and subsequent falls due to neuropathy, resulting in spinal fractures and lower spine nerve damage, rendering him bedridden.

Despite enduring months of recuperation in a long-term care facility, Jerry’s health struggles have persisted, and he now requires daily home visits for assistance with activities of daily living. A former independent and passionate greengrocer, Jerry has been unable to work throughout this prolonged health crisis.

Jerry’s devoted wife, Barbara Jean, has been a pillar of strength, supporting the family and caring for her husband to the best of her abilities. Unfortunately, she is now undergoing treatment for recurrent lung cancer, compounding the challenges faced by the Baldino family.

Both Jerry and Barbara Jean are grappling with COPD and diabetes, with Jerry recently diagnosed with bladder cancer. This relentless health decline has resulted in substantial medical bills, accumulating to $18,000, with their monthly income falling $1,000 short of covering their essential expenses. The threat of losing their home looms large, underscoring the urgency of the situation.

In light of these circumstances, Cindy is spearheading a fundraising effort to secure financial assistance for the Baldino family. Donations, regardless of the amount, are sought to alleviate the mounting medical bills and ensure ongoing care for Jerry and Barbara Jean.

“This almost unendurable period of health decline has landed the couple with $18,000 in insurance bills. Their income is currently $1,000 less than their monthly bills, and they have grown increasingly dependent on assistance and local aid. It is possible they could lose their house,” says Cindy Thoma.

Cindy expresses gratitude to all supporters, stating, “They have prayed and struggled and worked and been incredibly resourceful. At this time, after almost a decade of quietly enduring pain and suffering and countless indignities, they are asking for your help. Family is everything for the Baldinos. Blood is all we have, in the end.”
