Phil Ventre

$1,550 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 19 people in 2 months
Phil had a heart attack on 5/24/19. He had to wait one week, sitting in local hospital, in order to be transferred to Jersey Shore Hospital for heart catherization procedure.

At 10 PM on Thursday, he had procedure. He has 4 blockages. One blockage was 99% . The other 3 are 70% blocked. Phil opted to have stents because recovery time and seriousness of open heart bypass surgery was too great. 

Unfortunately hospital only completed the one stent with 99% blockage and opted to do remaining 3 in 2-3 weeks. Phil is currently out of work and will be out much longer than he wanted due to the week waiting for procedure and now having to wait for second procedure. He did not health insurance and is relying on charity care for hospital bills. While he might be obtaining insurance soon, he is paying out of pocket for numerous meds and follow up appts with cardiologist and other doctors. He did file for disability but there will be a delay in payment, prob 4 -5 weeks ( typical timeframes).

Everyone who knows phil, knows he is always very generous and willing to help anyone in need. I'm hoping to raise some money to assist him in paying bills, medication and doctor appointments for the next 4-5 weeks. Any amount of money is a help and will relieve the burden of extra stress placed on phil. 

Thank you in advance!!

Thank you again for very generous donations the last 7 days. We have $1695 which includes the cash donations. Phil is tentatively scheduled for his next procedure on Friday at Deborah. I will post an update on the procedure once completed. This gofundme page has alleviated the financial stress of Phil being out of work and without insurance. He has been able to focus on his health without worrying how his bills and medical costs will be covered. He is very grateful for all donations and feels extra loved!

Along w the donations on this site, we also have raised an additional $300 w in person cash donations. Brother John and sister in law Tara donated $100, mama Ventre and Leatherface $50, friend and co worker Ron $100 and friend Sherri n family $50!!!!

Phil will now need to get next procedure completed at Deborah. Jersey Shore and the cardiology group refused to do next one because phil has no insurance and since he was discharged, charity care will not cover the surgery at Jersey Shore. Waiting to hear back from Deborah.

Phil will be on leave at least 5 more weeks and major delay in disability because it takes forever!

Thank you for your support and donations!

Hawkins needs your help!!!
