A description of what exactly is going on is listed on the GoFundMe page, and reads, "Recently she suffered a severe hemorrhagic stroke, with hemiplegia on the right side. She had an urgent neurosurgery done," the description read. "She is currently in the Intensive Care Unit of the Cetven Medical Center in Valencia, Carabobo State. She will have to be in this unit for many days, a total of 1 month of hospitalization. Despite her neurological progress in such a short time after having been operated on, the long hospitalization time is necessary because she is presenting motor difficulties and she must stabalize."

"In addition she is also presenting respiratory deficit and needed endotracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation for several days. Both her recovery and and stabilization require many days of intensive care, which represents a significant sum of expenses." Several of Tosta's fans flooded the comment section of her post to show their love and support during this difficult time for her family.
