Have A Heart For Troy Churney

I am doing this campaign on behalf of my Son In Law Troy Churney~ On March 25,2016 Troy went in for some routine blood work following an appt 2 days prior for chest pain. His Dr. called him at 1:20 pm and told him he needed to get to the nearest E.R asap his troponin levels, which are levels measured in the blood to differentiate unstable angina and myocardial infarction (heart attack) in people with chest pain.A person who recently had a myocardial infarction would have an area of damaged heart muscle and elevated cardiac TROPONIN levels in the blood meaning he was having some form of a heart attack. Troy was in such shock and I don't think he even understood what that all meant then, crazy yes we all know he  drove himself to Upstate E.R where he was later admitted for having a mild heart attack.
 He under went lots of testing,blood work ,ekg's and then on Monday a Heart Catherization which showed that Troy had severe Heart disease and Artherosclerosis and will be requiring a triple Cornary bypass surgery April 1,2016. Not what they were expecting or wanting to hear. This news had put alot of emotional stress on there family.
Troy is one of the best people I know. He is a great father to my grandchildren,a great husband to my daughter a awesome friend,son,brother,uncle,cousin and would do anything to help anyone that he could. He lives for his family. If you know Troy you already know that he is just a genuine guy all around. 
Troy will be required to be out of work for 3 months which will also require my daughter his wife to miss alot of time as well to care for him this will be a financial strain on them both seeing they were not expecting  this they will need a little help from family and friends to get by. They have been in contact with the insurance company which has indicated they will cover all expenses expect for a 10% co-insurance.
Any donations will be truly appreciated, I will keep you all updated on Troy's progress and how surgery goes on Friday~ Please continue to keep him and his family in your prayer.

Thank-you
