DeAnda’s wife,Darlene DeAnda, set up the GoFundMe pagefor her husband and shared more details on his medical emergency. “Jaime had a medical emergency that got so bad it made it almost impossible for him to breathe. If I had waited any longer to take him to the ER he might not be here today,” she said. “When the doctor finally saw him he said, ‘Wow this is bad! Mrs. DeAnda, we need to put a trachea down his throat if not he will die but even with the trachea, there is a 50/50 chance he might not make it.’ Before I could even answer, the doctor had the nurse wheel Jaime away and said we have to do this now we are just losing time.”
