Heart Surgery

I have been experiencing ongoing heart problem for months since the loss of my brother who committed suicide in April 2019. Before his death he battled cancer. His death has been extremely hard for me because we were very close and I did everything I could to help care for him. Now, I have been diagnosed with supraventricular tachycardia (SVT)which is a rapid heartbeat that develops when the normal electrical impulses of the heart are disrupted. As a result, I suffered from a heart attack on January 17, 2020. After being hospitalized for a week, I was released and put on heart medication. Unfortunately, the medication did not work. The doctors have tried numerous medications but none of them have helped. I have spent the last five days in the hospital being monitored. My heart beat spikes to 252 beats per minute out the blue even while on the medication. This heart condition is extremely serious and critical. I need heart surgery. I am now home but still have severe chest pains and heart palpitations which could lead up to heart failure. I desperately need this procedure done. It is hard for my family to support me because they are covering my brother’s bills from his unexpected passing. My Medicaid will only cover part of my surgery. I need to come up with the remaining balance of $2,874. Whatever you can give to help, please help me! I am only 25 years old with a 6 year old daughter and have my whole life ahead of me. Getting through this will help me get back to putting my life back together.
