Robert's Medical Fundraiser

Hey everyone, my name is Sarah and recently my brother, Robert, got diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure. Congestive Heart Failure is a chronic condition in which the heart does not pump enough blood as it should. If the heart does not pump enough blood and oxygen through the body, it can cause many other bodily organs to start to shut down and fail. Luckily for us, we caught it just in time before that happened. Unfortunely, his heart is only pumping between 10-20%. This is very bad since a healthy human heart normally pumps between 50-60%. His cardiologist told him that for his age, 26, this is the worst heart he has ever seen. My brother underwent surgery to try and discover the cause of why his heart is as bad as it is. Unfortunetly, it is not due to blockage and is more than likely genetic since our father died from an early age of 36 of a heart attack. Because of the severity of my brother's heart, he will more than likely be on many medications and undergo many treatments for the rest of his life. And depending on how his body handles the medicines and treatments and if his heart improves by any, he may need a heart transplant. 

My brother does not have insurance at the moment, so it will not be easy paying for all the medicines, treatments, procedures, and hospital bills. Our mother is a single parent who does not make enough money to help with these expenses and pay her bills at the same time. Any amount will help, even if it is just $5. No donation is too small and everything will be greatly appreciated. If you cannot donate, we completely understand, we just ask that you share this with your friends and family to help spread the word and get my brother's story heard. 

Thank you so much!
