On Friday, September 14, 2018, Megan Franzoso, an EMT, went into cardiac arrest for 45 minutes while at Community Medical Center in Toms River, NJ. Once a pulse was returned, Megan was flown to Temple University Medical Center in Philadelphia, PA, where she was in critical condition and spent time on life support in a medically induced coma. Megan was recently moved from the hospital to a rehabilitation center where she will spend some time learning how to walk and talk again.
At this point, we have no idea how long her recovery period will be, but we do know that she has a long and very costly road ahead of her. It is expected that her medical insurance coverage will end before her need for care does, especially because of the level of care she has been receiving (ICU, Medevac Flight).
