Lonnie Dee Union’s Failing Heart

Lonnie Dee Union, a great and caring father, grand-father, brother, uncle, cousin, and Christian has been faced with the unfortunate circumstances of having an impaired heart.  On the outside, Dee has a heart of gold with a history of always helping his community and those in need. As a correctional officer for 30 years, Dee has and continues to live a healthy lifestyle. Dee recently retired as a Lieutenant last June 2017 and it’s been a constant struggle with heart disease since retiring. In July, Dee was rushed to the hospital where he had to undergo an emergency triple heart bi-pass surgery. Following the procedure, the Cardiologist informed Dee that he needed a Heart Life Vest, to address his low heart rate.  

              Today, the man who lends a helping hand is in need of our help. Dee’s health insurance does not cover health equipment. The monthly rental fee for a heart life vest is $3,750, which totals $11,250.  If his heart isn’t any stronger after three months of use, the doctors will perform another surgery to insert a Heart Defibrillator. We pray-fully ask your help in any way as no donation is too large or small. Sharing is also caring, please share Dee’s story, with any words of encouragement or prayer. Thank you.
