Christmas of last year I had a heart attack that nearly killed me. The hospital in Dickson TN could not treat me (no heart doctors available on xmass) so they loaded me in an ambulance to Nashville. Doctors in Nashville could not come to an agreement on treatment so they approved special treatment at a hospital in Kentucky. The machine at the hospital in Kentucky broke down forcing me to travel to Indiana to get treatments at a facility which has the proper working equipment.
I may be required to travel to a clinic in Arizona if my current doctor can't get the special drug shipped in from Germany or synthesized locally. The travel has been costly, but the treatments are more costly and difficult to locate.
UPDATE: MARCH 17,2020
I have been able to reduce the amount of money needed as I have received donations outside of the gofundme campaign and decided to take on jobs regardless of the doctors telling me not to work.
There has been enough donations to help me formulate a treatment of vitamins that unclog arteries that I discovered was being used at Loma Linda Hospital in the 70s but seems to be forgotten. The formulation seems to be working better than expected. I have not had a heart attack or angina in close to 3 weeks now.
Along with new things that has become available to the public that I have been able to add to the formula and the fact that Plaquex is also just now this year available to Americans and even in pill form, I have been able to lower the amount required even further.
I may be able to skip the rest of the EECP treatments as well if testing proves to have cleaned out my arteries with the potion I have put together along with the new PlaqueX iv and pill treatment; in that case will be able to drop the rest of the needed donation amount!
Here is a link to my supplements formulation, at the bottom is link references to where I discovered the formulations.
Thank you, all who have shared this page and donated.

CONTINUATION OF PREVIOUS ARTICLE
EECP & IV treatments are needed in order to stay alive and reverse my condition. 35 EECP treatments, 30 intravenous (iv) EDTA chelation infusions , and 20-30 PTX phospholipid therapy treatments. Each treatment and various doctor consultations averages $150.00 -$500.00 each. I already have 10 EECP treatments paid for but Gofundme keeps about 3% so this comes to an approximate total of $16,000.00 and this does not include various extra tests they require, or travel & lodging.
I do not qualify for Medicare/Medicaid and do not have any other form of insurance to pay for the procedures; the procedures require payment in advance.
The doctors say I don't have long to live unless my heart vessels are treated. They are surprised I have lived this long. I have already had at least 6 heart attacks and it is a miracle I have not died already. Many people die upon their first heart attack.
If you can find it in your heart to help keep me alive with a donation to get the needed treatments, I would be eternally grateful and so would both of my dogs, Cocoa the German Shepherd and Max who is a Malamute Shepherd mix.
I am in the process of documenting my experience and should I make it, will provide a free signed copy of the book to anyone who donates.
Here is a bit of information about the therapy programs in case some of you need such a treatment plan.
Information about EECP and EDTA. Dr Whittaker has retired and closed his center but there are still clinics that provide these same treatments.
So far, the largest most advanced EECP treatment center I could find is in Cincinnati Ohio at Christ Hospital but I can not afford their prices so I am getting treated in Indiana for now.
I had the honor to have Dr. Ghandi review my medical records and interview me to see how compatible I would be with the treatments. She was very informative about the process and thoughtful about my health and financial conditions. I would recommend her to anyone interested in EECP.
Information about phospholipid therapy using phosphotidycholine:
I hope none of you will ever require these treatments but at least you have the opportunity to be educated on the topics. For more information about EECP and to find a providing clinic or hospital near you visit the website at EECP.com To learn more about phospholipid therapy visit this link to the Well Spring Clinic in Arizona.
Thank you all,
