Help For Jessica

A detective with the Asheville Police Department is turning to the community he serves for strength. Brandon Morgan's wife, Jessica, had a brain aneurysm three weeks ago and has been in the ICU at Chapel Hill ever since.

In addition to her medical condition she is seven months pregnant. While trying to stop the bleeding on her brain, doctors are also trying to prevent her from going into labor.  Platinum coils were successfully place around the vessels and the bleeding on her brain has stopped.  The neurosurgeon said that Jessica's aneurism was the 2nd largest they had ever seen at UNC. 

Brandon Morgan said his wife's health is good and stable.  Doctors are continuously monitoring her neurological responses. He also is happy to report that their baby boy is healthy.

The couple also has an 8-year-old daughter, Bella. She is staying with family in Asheville.

Friends have set up a website to help raise money for Jessica's medical bills. If you would like to donate, click here.
