By the grace of God, Marcus was able to have a second chance at life and got better. However, after having a defibrillator put in and taking the necessary medication, he’s been admitted to the hospital again and the doctors have told him his heart is at 5%; he has end stage heart failure secondary to non ischemic cardiomyopathy. Marcus is in the ICU and has to have an artificial heart put in until he can get a heart transplant. As you can imagine, both the medical and personal expenses are adding up. It’s an extremely expensive procedure and insurance will not cover everything and it won’t start right away; he needs to have this surgery ASAP. The procedure to get the artificial heart alone is projected to be between $800,000 to $1,000,000.
First and foremost, I’m asking for prayers for my brother and our family. If you are able to give anything, please donate whatever you can and share this GoFundMe to help him. The money we raise will help with medical expenses, support for his daughter, medications, physical therapy, and the 24/7 care that he will need post surgery. Thank you for your prayers and anything you can give; we truly appreciate it.
