Karl's Heart & Stroke Fund

My name is Karl Amano and I'm a recent survivor of two strokes (Nov. 27 & Dec. 4, 2017) and a second heart attack (Jan. 4, 2018).

I was released after having been diagnosed with afib and having my previous stent replaced with 2 new stents after it was determined my afib caused my heart attack and two strokes.

I am recovering at home and numerous appointments with doctors are still to come along with cardio-rehab (which is not covered by insurance) and physical therapy.  I may be required to have an internal pacemaker/defibulator surgically implanted after wearing this temporary external monitor for the time being.

I currently am unemployed and the bills are starting to roll in. I was selling on ebay and paid my monthly health insurance using the sales I made.  Now the costs I need to pay has significantly increased and feel overwhelmed.

I am reaching out to family, friends and strangers for help. I would greatly appreciate any amount you can give and be forever thankful.  Also, if you could share this post that would be very helpful!

Thank you very much for your time and attention and bless you all!
