A New Heart for Michelle

St. Croix daughter, Michelle Greene, grew up in Estate Calquohoun and graduated from St. Croix Central High School in 1979. She has been involved with community affairs, a member of the local theater group, worker at the post office in Frederiksted for many years, was a teacher and was known for her athleticism. It saddens me to report that Michelle suffers from a heart condition called Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) a result of having hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). Her condition is hereditary.
In Michelle’s own words, “I have a serious heart condition that will require major surgery. I’ve been in and out of several hospitals between St. Croix, Miami and Atlanta for a total of seven times since January. Unfortunately, oral treatments are no longer working forcing me to remain on a 24 hour IV drip. I cannot leave the hospital until l have surgery and I have been hospitalized for the past five weeks. On a positive note, I was recently informed that I qualify for a heart transplant and now the waiting process has begun.”
Fortunately, she is surrounded by her three lovely daughters (of which one is still a dependent) and her mother. Of recent, Michelle’s kidney’s have shut down and she is now on dialysis.
It has been a year since Michelle has been able to work, which is why I am appealing to all of you for assistance - no amount is to small and many thanks in advance. Your comments and well wishes are welcomed.
