Caring for Carol

To know Carol is to love Carol. A mother, wife, sister and friend. If you’re reading this then you are here for the same reason I am and that is to help.

For those of you who don’t know, Carol was diagnosed with atrial fibrialtion at the age of 17 but has suffered with the symptoms since age 7.She get dizzy, and lightheaded, it’s hard for her to breathe, her heart rate jumps up extremely high, and stays that way for days. She has tried several medications and has had 2 heart procedures over the past 3 years, and yet still no relief. She is in and out of the hospital 1 to 2 times a month and has been told that she is at risk for a stoke. In early March she went for an EP study at Deborah Hospital and was told that she has all the symptoms for Brugada Syndrome. It’s a genetic heart defect that is incurable with medications or even with surgery, the only way to stay alive is to get a pace maker. As if that wasn’t enough to intake she was also told that it is hereditary and if she has it her two young boys will have to be tested as well.
Carol scheduled the test that very day to later find out her insurance will not cover the testing. Our goal is to help her and the boys get tested as soon as possible.
Thank you for your time and any donation you can make.
God Bless
