Susan is a wonderful woman with a beautiful soul and I'm asking if you can not contribute a few dollars if you could please share this with friends and family on any social media platforms available to you like I will be trying to do as well. Thank you for your time.
"My name is Susan Bradford. I currently live in Houston, Texas. I desperately want to live.
My fight all began thirty years ago, when at the age of 34 I had a heart attack, which resulted in my first angioplasty. Being a woman, not over weight and no high blood pressure, there was no known reason for this, but due to the fact my father had a history of heart disease and so did his father, I was dealt a bad hand of cards.
Through the years and a bilateral bypass, multiple angioplasties, ablations and stents, I was eventually forced to be implanted with a pacemaker/defibrillator.
Unfortunately this did not fix the problems that I was facing. Through all of this, I now have less than 20% heart function, a mitral valve that cannot be repaired or replaced due to no viable heart muscle left and congestive heart failure. Having a heart this weak does not allow the blood or the oxygen to pump efficiently enough to keep me going and has put an unbelievable damper on my daily quality of life.
Due to the high cost expected for this transplant, that I am so desperately needing, I do not have the funds that are being required in addition to living costs that will be needed during the recuperation period as I will not be able to work.
I have been told that in order for me to be added to the National heart transplant list, I must show that I have the funds needed that involves the care-giving, medications, cardiac rehab, and any needed extra expenses that should arise.
Any donation, whether large or small would be very much appreciated.
I would love very much to continue this exciting journey through life, only this time with a heart that will allow me to enjoy all life has to offer without limitations.
Thank you for your help and support!!"
