Road to a new heart.

Hello all! I’m not even sure where to begin. My family just got some unwanted news. Over a year ago my mom needed emergency open heart surgery for a triple bypass. Then shortly after had to get a pacemaker as well. Her heart is still not functioning in the way it should. Her doctors have instructed her to go on disability which is going to gut punch my parents. My mom has had no insurance through this whole process and my dad is barber and he’s doing the best he can financially to keep them going. I’m starting this go fund me to help them get a kick start because the news that we received yesterday is that the only way her life can be prolonged is if she has a heart transplant. She’s also trying to quit smoking with the help of chantix but it’s $400 a month. If she doesn’t quit smoking that’s really not going to help her with her current heart or when she gets a new heart.  So I’m not asking for a lot just 5.00 or 10.00. I just want to be able to help.
