Twins Brandon & Bryson were born 2 months premature on July 28, 1990. Brandon - 2 lbs 12 oz
Bryson - 1 lb 13 oz. Bryson deceased 7/28/90.
I was hospitalized approx. 3 months & discharged weighing approx 4 lbs. At 2 years old, I had a procedure done @ Queens Hospital performed by
Dr. Reddy to widen my heart valve, called valvuloplasty. I was diagnosed with pulmonary stenosis.
As years passed, my heart enlarged substantially & I now require an open heart surgery. Currently I am scheduled for open heart surgery to replace my heart valve @ Straub Hospital on August 25th. Two cardiologist surgeons will be performing my surgery, one from Hawaii & another from San Diego. Medical expenditures have been accumulating & will continue throughout my surgery & will surpass affordability for me.
My goal is to return back to surfing 3 months after surgery. Surfing is my passion & I will be looking forward to returning back into the water.
Thank you for reading my story & for all the love, prayers & support to help enrich my life while I experience this life changing experience.
