Help for my father in Venezuela

My dad is a very active person who loves hiking, water sports, enjoying nature, and has a passion for books. He has been diagnosed with a severe cardiovascular problem, aortic stenosis. He is in need of a heart transcatheter valve. 

Insurance companies in Venezuela don't cover the cost of this valve, that is $30,000, because of the political and economic crisis that we are facing.  Your contribution will go directly to cover this cost.  This valve is supplied by a company called Medtronic. 

Mi papá es una persona muy activa, que ama los deportes, la naturaleza, y la lectura. El ha sido diagnosticado con una estenosis aortica severa que le afecta su corazón y el resto de sistema cardiovascular. Los seguros en Venezuela no cubren el costo de la valvula ($30,000) que necesita para la intervención que lo ayudaría a mejorar. Es parte de la crisis generalizada que sufre Venezuela. POR FAVOR AYUDENME A MI Y A MI FAMILIA A SALVAR UNA VIDA MAS EN VENEZUELA.

My name is Rosanna Rivero and I live in the U.S. while my family is in Venezuela. I am raising the funds on behalf of my dad, who is the person that ultimately will receive the funds, as well as the company that provides the medical supplies that he will need.
