His doctor told him that he is the youngest cardiac patient they have seen. He takes Metoprolol among others and they make him fatigued and depressed. He feels upset that he can not contribute to the house the way the rest of us can, much less live on his own in case something happens to him.
He has learned that there is a surgery that will help him, called Cardiac Ablation. Cardiac Ablation is a procedure to scar or destroy tissue in your heart that's allowing incorrect electrical signals to cause an abnormal heart rhythm. Diagnostic catheters are threaded through blood vessels to your heart where they are used to map your heart's electrical signals.
This surgery still requires a $3,000 dollar deductible. With my mother raising my two younger siblings, me helping at home as well, and putting myself through school, it has been hard to come up with the money. We are asking for help to get my brother the surgery he needs, so he can live a normal life like a 25 year old should.
