So not only did I have a stoke last night, now we find out that I need to have open heart surgery to get a heart valve transplant. Now remember how we didn’t have insurance to stay at the hospital over night, well we definitely don’t have the money to afford this surgery. And this is an operation that needs to happen. The doctor recommended we make this account to raise money, he said we can’t wait for the surgery to be done and we need to act quick. So I’m asking all my friends and family to help. Honestly even if it is $2 dollars and sharing this post. The average cost of a heart valve replacement is $200,000 in the U.S. but we are debating having to operation done in Tijuana at a fraction of the cost, anywhere between $18,000-$25,000 depending on what the heart surgeon sees. Anything helps, the money raised will be used to pay for the operation, emergency room, medication, doctor visits, testing and after care costs.
We are doing anything and everything to raise and save money, to save my life. Please help spread the word, and if you would help us by donating money we would be eternally grateful. Thank you all.
Feel free to message me with any questions. I'll be posting updates on Instagram @bartusch. Thank you all.
