WBM's Triple Bypass

$6,600 of $7,000 goal

Raised by 139 people in 7 months
Some of you may have heard that my health hasn't been great lately.  Well, a stress echocardiogram  set off some alarms from my cardiologist and, one heart catheterization later,  it was revealed I need a triple bypass.

My dad had a double pypass when he was just a few years older than I am now.  Dad had also suffered a heart attack which led to his surgery.  Luckily, I escaped that pain.

My insurance from work will cover much of the hospital costs but I am concerned about other expenses like rent, utilities and rehab costs that will pop up before I can return to work.  If there's anyway you can help, I would greatly appreciate it. That will remove a lot of stress from my recovery.

All my best,

Mark

Just an update, since I sleepily made my first vid about the surgery public last night forgetting it would be tweeted to the world.

I am doing well. The last few weeks I have felt totally exhausted but some fresh meds have given me a lot of energy again. Wise Beard Man has been more like Wise Crotchety Old Man.

Now, get off my lawn!

Hi, everyone! Going to shoot a little video to update you all in a day or two but recovery is going well. There continue to be obstacles plopped in my way but by and large things are going well. It's been a non-ending string of appointments with specialists and more expensive treatments than I ever imagined (and a couple transfusions I wasn't expecting) but I am getting stronger everyday and am heading back to work in a few weeks.

I had to up the goal for this campaign to be able to continue to pay for all these treatments. You folks have been so kind to me and I deeply appreciate that. If it is possible to chip in a few more dollars, that would be a huge help.

Thanks,

Mark

Thanks so much for blowing past the goal in less than 12 hours! That is truly amazing. Special thanks to Tony Ortega and everyone hunkered down in the Bunker. Day in and day out, Tony is breaking stories and exposing the ruthless nature of the Church of Scientology. He's created not just an important resource but also a family full of great readers and contributors.
