Get Well Cleo! A Recovery Fund for Cleo Baker
Organized by: Emma Simpson
An update from the world of Cleo Baker: Cleo has moved from Johns Hopkins Hospital to a rehabilitation facility, which is a step in the right direction! Since she she cannot have visitors outside of immediate family, we ask that you please send cards and well-wishes to her at 1752 Park Avenue and we will make sure she gets them! Thank you all for the outpouring of love and generosity over the past month. Again, words simply cannot express our appreciation. Thank you!
On Tuesday, July 14th Cleo Baker unexpectedly suffered a massive subarachnoid hemorrhage (a ruptured aneurysm in her brain). She was taken to the hospital Tuesday morning and underwent a successful surgery the following evening. She is currently in critical condition but is receiving excellent post-op care at Johns Hopkins University Hospital. Unfortunately, it remains unclear what the long-term effects of this terrible incident will be.
We would like to ensure that Cleo receives the highest quality care throughout every stage of her recovery and need your help to do so! We are expecting Cleo to remain in the Neurosciences Critical Care Unit at Hopkins until mid-August before she is able to move to a rehabilitation facility. Please consider making a financial contribution of any size to help cover Cleo's medical bills going forward. Your support will mean so much to Cleo and her grandmother. Thank you!

A Message from Emma: Words cannot describe how appreciative Cléo's grandmother, Sandra, is for all of the support - both finanicial and emotional - that she and Cleo have received over the past two weeks, and especially since we started this fundraiser.
We've raised over $10,000 to help cover Cleo's impending rehabilitation costs ... in less than a week. That is beyond amazing. Thank you to everyone who has liked, shared, and given. Cleo is currently sedated, but when she wakes up I know she will be overjoyed and humbled by this outpouring of support. I am. Thank you.
