On November 17th, 2012 my wife, Rocio Almanza, went into a coma.
She was rushed to the hospital and has been unresponsive ever since.
We’re high school sweethearts. We’ve been married for over four amazing years. We went to college together, we’ve lived together and we’ve loved together.
In 2010, I was diagnosed with cancer. She stood by me for six months while I underwent Chemotherapy.
The pain was unbearable, but she was always there. She fed me when I was too weak to move. She talked to me when I was too lucid to talk.
Now it’s my time to be there for her.
As a citizen, I have not been able to obtain legal status for my wife for the past four years, not for not trying. We’ve tried for the past four years, but the amount of red tape can make this process last a decade.
After President Obama signed the decree we were beyond words. It was finally happening.
The day we had our immigration appointment; she collapsed from a seizure.
She’s had multiple spinal taps, brain biopsies and tests done to her. The doctors still don’t know what’s wrong.
At the moment, the doctors have decided to remove her from Critical Care. Even though she is unresponsive and dependent on medication and breathing/feeding tubes they have discharged her from the hospital. The doctors have informed us that our only choice is deportation.
She has lived in this country all her life. She’s married to an American Citizen. This is unjust beyond words.
I am doing all I can to bring her proper medical attention. Right now I’m at a loss. I intend to keep this site active to let her followers know what they can do.
