Friends and Colleagues of Gloria Foster are uniting to raise funds for medical expenses and to lift her spirits!.

Gloria Foster has been suffering with heart issues for many years. While it has been a genetic issue, suffering with metabolic conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, and hypercholesterolemia has only worsened her condition. Gloria was advised by her physician to go on long term disability at the end of 2011.

Gloria is currently on a waiting list for a heart transplant. We are hopeful and confident that everything will be great for Gloria.

While Gloria is on disability, she needs to keep her current health insurance through COBRA. The cost is nearly $800 per month. The good news is that through COBRA, she was able to keep her excellent health insurance which is now allowing her to be considered very soon to have a heart transplant. Once she receives her heart transplant, Gloria will have additional medical and recovery costs until she is well.

Recovery after her heart transplant is similar to the recovery after any heart surgery. It takes about six to eight weeks for her incisions to heal. During this time, she will need nurses to take care of her and transportation back and forth to her physicians in NYC.

That is why we set up this website, Gloria’s Healthy Heart, for donations. Please be as generous as you can so that Gloria can recover without additional worry of the financial crisis that her heart transplant will cost. Please leave words of encouragement and support so Gloria can be reminded of how we all feel about her. And lastly, please feel free to share the link to this website to friend, family and colleagues who may know Gloria.

Thank You!
