The family of Gilbert Herrera are raising money to help him fight Congestive Heart Failure.

Gilbert Herrera is our father, and he has been fighting Congestive Heart Failure for 2 years now. It seems the medication he has been on, worked up until our dad couldn't breath on his own anymore. Pain in his stomach became alot worse. Water in his lungs just wouldn't go away. He needed to go to the hospital. After being in the hospital for a week he found out 46% of his heart has deteriorated, and his heart is only pumping at 15%. He was also told that he needs a Cardiac Defibrillator (pacemaker) to help him prevent sudden death from cardiac arrest due to threatening abnormally heart rhythm. But he couldnt get the surgery because he has no insurance. So he was sent home on September 11,2012. It would cost us out of pocket since he can't get insurance. He has been denied because of his condition (heart failure). We were also told that he was denied because he must have a minor child living in the home. The donations will go to surgery along with his stay in the hospital and all his medication he will need after surgery. This will also include his checkup after surgery visit. Thank you all for your time, and donations, support, and most importantly your prayers. We do believe in miracles and pray for one each day for our father.
