We HEART William

Hello good people I am setting up this account on behalf of my brother William Bigham. Last March he got wet at work and a couple days later started having trouble breathing, he thought it was his asthma so he began taking breathing treatments to no avail. He then went to 1 hospital who also gave him a breathing treatment and still he was struggling to breathe. He checked himself out and went to another hospital who did an EKG and found that his heart was only functioning between 12-15%. He was given a life vest however, he was still back and forth in the hospital with shortness of breath.

 

Fast forward to August he was back in the hospital fighting for his life while doctors told us countless times that he may not make it my brother fought hard and with the power of prayer, 4 major surgeries, many minor procedures later my brother left the hospital after 4 months. He is still recovering but THANK GOD much better than he was, he currently has ventricular assist devices for the heart. However, he will still need a heart transplant he has insurance but we have been advised that with any transplant or major surgery there may be repeat services that may not be covered because you have exhausted the benefits available. With that being said the doctors have given us a fundraising amount of $14,000 to cover projected and unexpected cost. This amount has to be proven to the transplant coordinators.(I am asking $15,000 so that once fees are deducted from Gofund he still has the goal amount.)

 

We love and thank each of you in advance for your generosity. May God continue to bless you and your family. If you have any additional questions or do not feel comfortable donating in this manner you can DM me for other options or contact our father James Bigham, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
