About this fundraiser

My mother suffered from an ascending aortic aneurysm which is a weak spot in the top part of your aorta, which is the main artery in your body. The aneurysm bulges outward, and may cause your blood vessel wall to tear or break open. It’s a life-threatening condition. About 60% of all aneurysms in the thoracic aorta (in your chest) affect the ascending aorta.

Ascending aortic aneurysms affect about 10 out of 100,000 people each year., During aneurysm repair surgery, a surgeon makes an incision (cut) in your chest to access your aorta. They remove the aneurysm bulge by cutting it out and in its place sew a graft (tube made of a strong, synthetic material). Depending on the location of the aneurysm, your surgeon may need to detach and reattach your two coronary arteries. This type of open procedure requires cardiopulmonary bypass. This is a procedure where a machine takes over your heart and lung function during surgery..

My mother doesn’t have insurance and we are humbly asking for your support to cover some of the hospitals bills for the first surgery. After they discharged her a week after the surgery, we manage to get her back on her feet and was taking her meds as well doing her psit surgery visits with the cardiologist and vascular surgeon because her abdominal aorta was possibly compromise. They recommended a CT Scan in May, this was Monday and Saturday I was taking her back to the ER due to fhe same symptoms just lower. 
the CT confirmed the aorta was bulging, and admitted her to again, submit her to a vascular  procedure, so we are still waiting for those bills too.

i feel grateful she was able to survive and receive help, I want her also not to be worry about debt, when life can change in a second and leave you completely helpless.


thank you and may your donation return to you in blessings and considered paid forward.
