In order for him to get these surgery’s, we would need to move to Palo Alto, CA so that he can be treated at Stanford. Of course, we’re going to do whatever we have to do so that he can be treated. If you’ve been to Palo Alto, then you know it’s a very expensive place to live. His insurance can only cover so much and with this happening so sudden, what we have in our savings isn’t close to what we need for him to get treated and to make a living out there. The reason why I say we would need to make a living there is because once he gets the LVAD, it can take up to 6 months to recover and if a heart were to become available for him, he would need to already be there close by. Once he gets the heart transplant, it would also take up to another 6 months for him to recover from that surgery. This happened so fast and sudden, that it gave us no time at all to save for Michaels treatments and living expenses.
With that being said, we are asking for any kind of donations that would help Michael, Aria, and I out. Not only are we asking for donations but also for prayers. Everything is truly appreciated. Let’s continue to pray for Michael and let’s help heal his heart!
