Marks heart troubles began back in 1998, with a misdiagnosis of the flu. Resulting, he experienced his first heart attack, unfortunately sustaining heart damage to his left ventricle, the necessary workhorse of the muscle. Since his first attack, he has had many run-ins with hospital visits and medical setbacks. We have reached the point of the big plunge-needing transplant.
In creating this fundraiser, we aim to have him moved comfortably back to central WI-close enough for us to support, transport and care for him properly. Funds raised will go toward towering medical bills, necessary moving expenses. They will also be put toward dental work and an insulin pump, as both are crucial parts of infection control and bodily regulation. We need to ensure this heart transplant will be as successful as possible. With your help, we will be able to do so. We’re very hopeful Mark will have a new lease on life. Time is of the essence, so we greatly appreciate your generosity at this time.
