Medical Emergency Surgery Needed IMMEDIATELY

My sister,  Lisa Joseph  is in need of emergency heart surgery in Trinidad. The cause being CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE.

*For those of you who aren't aware, the medical system in Trinidad is not great. Unless we are able to come up with the funds to cover her surgery, she will be on a very long list for public healthcare and she may not have that much time. The procedure is very costly when done privately , so we are asking everyone to help us reach our goal.

*Within the last few months , Drs discovered a hole in her heart and two valves that are not connecting. Instead it is leaking fluid  into her lungs. It has caused severe fluid retention , her pressure has dropped significantly ,her breathing is difficult , making her somewhat immobile. She has been given medication to help but they are also very dangerous if used for a long period of time. Either way all these factors can cause her to go into cardiac arrest. We are praying for a miracle and hoping that we can , with the help of everyone, raise enough funds to get her into surgery.

*Lisa is one of the kindest , most sincere people you will meet in your lifetime. She gives of herself unconditionally and she helps any and everyone. Now its our time to really help her and I am praying you will help her too. She has three beautiful children depending on her to get through this heartbreaking dilemma, and as a single parent, it's very difficult for all of them. Let's gets her into surgery as soon as possible... Her life depends on it!

**As I end, I thank you sincerely from the bottom of my heart for your support, love and kindness, even as simple as sharing this post.
