In 2017, at only 45 years old, my brother Troy suffered a severe heart attack at his home in Orlando, Florida.   He has endured heart issues as a child including a heart murmur.   Troy was hospitalized for months without health insurance at the time.   Eventually, our family  was able to help secure medicaid and disability for him but that was only part of the equation to helping my brother get back on his feet.  While being hospitalized, he has fallen way behind on his personal bills which my mother, myself and other family members have been assisting him with  to keep him afloat.   Troy is currently under the care of a nurse back home. He's attached to an expensive 24 hour IV drip (Dobutamine) that is the only thing keeping his heart pumping and he is in dire need of a heart transplant.   Heart transplants can run up to as high as 787,000.   Our 20,000 goal is just a drop in the bucket, but any help we can get to keep my brother's personal bills under control would be greatly appreciated.  I am also seeking help to cover travel expenses to get my family back down to support Troy during his operation which is hopefully coming in late February/early March.  Your prayers and any gift you can share to help my only brother would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you for your precious time.
