Help save the life of young mother

Donation protected
Idiopathic Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (IPAH)? It is a rare, degenerative, and progressive disease of the lung and heart with no cure, where the heart is not able to pump enough blood to the lungs in time. This eventually leads to total heart & lung failure. The only way to survive this disease is with a lung transplant and in case of severe damage, even a double lung & heart transplant. It is a debilitating condition, leaving those suffering from it unable to do even the smallest of tasks.

I am 37 years of age, mother to a 6-year-old son. I was diagnosed with end-stage IPAH in early 2020. After many failed attempts to treat this disease with high-dose, targeted therapy, I had no alternative but to undergo a double lung transplant in October 2022, as my heart was rapidly failing. My surgery has hence been successful. However, our co-pay for the pre-treatment process (high-cost medication) and the surgery have depleted our entire life savings, and my parents & family have liquidated all their assets to help us through this surgery.

Due to my inability to work physically and the pandemic, my husband and I have lost our jobs. The cost of post-surgery treatment is upwards of $140,000 every six months. My insurance ran out at the end of March 2023. I must renew my insurance by 2nd April 2023. We have a grace period of 10 days. My husband works multiple shifts just to put food on the table and get us by. My parents, who are both close to 70 years old, have nothing left to support us. My current medical insurance company AXA/GIG has raised our premium to $77,000 for the year. I need urgent help to cover the cost of my insurance. Through GoFundMe I am appealing to the kind-hearted to help me raise $77,000/- in the next few days.

Every bit of your help will be greatly appreciated as this will help me recover in a safe environment with the required medical care. Discontinuation of post-operative medications is life-threatening. I will be glad to provide additional information if needed. Please help me get back to health so that I can take care of my young son. My thoughts and prayers for all of you who are helping us tide through this. May God bless you all.
