Jennifer Toole Appolloni’s stroke story was first brought to light on social media on April 18, 2021. Tiffany Toole, Jennifer’s sister, had posted the information on Facebook. That same day, @angelaisawake tweeted the information on twitter.
News that Jennifer suffered a massive stroke five days after her Pfizer vaccine, began to spread quickly.
A gofundme fundraiser was created and the initial fundraiser statement says:
“Jen wasn’t feeling herself, she had a bad headache but wanted to get the girls ready for school then go to an urgent care later. Jen wasn’t able complete what she wanted to do that morning and collapsed on the floor. Her husband, Aaron called 911 – Jen was rushed to the local hospital stabilized then transported to the Orlando Health ICU.”
On May 13, 2021 Aaron Appolloni, Jennifer’s husband, had updated the fundraiser and let everyone know that Jennifer was finally off the ventilation. She was ready to begin her next phase of treatment, which would consist of a lot of therapy.
Unfortunately, Jennifer had another recent setback. May 23, 2021 a new update was shared on gofundme. In the update it states:
“Jenn was readmitted to the hospital from her therapy location last Wednesday night due to a complication with her surgery. She has since been reevaluated and had to have some additional surgical procedures which will delay her a few weeks and then she will be back into full rehab.”
Our thoughts are with Jennifer and her family as she continues to fight this battle. She has no insurance coverage and has accumulated six weeks worth of medical bills thus far. She still has many more weeks to go in effort to make a full recovery.
The fundraiser for Jennifer and her family has generated almost 25k of the 100k goal.
