(Queens, NY (USA))
Submitted May 30, 2014 - I am 39 years old. I have 4 teenagers. I had a massive heart attack at 32. Doctors say I am a living miracle. In 7 years I have had double bypass that failed. I have total 11 stents now.
Doctors say I wont live long enough to see my kids grow up. I am a fighter. I wont give up. My doctor said nothing else they can do. I have researched so many places so many procedures like stem cells.
I finally after 2 years got a response from Cleveland clinic and hopefully going with in next two weeks. Praying they can help me. I was already told by many doctors I might need a heart transplant.
I am not giving up at all. I want to live. I am adopted and dont know family history so I am making my own history for my kids.
I want someone to tell my story or to even film me on my journey to Cleveland clinic. Can anyone help me? I have sent hundreds of emails over the years to news crews, talk shows doctors no response.
This has not only affected me but totally affected my family in so many ways. They don't want their mom to die. I need answers and or help to prolong my life and to tell my story to other women who might be going through same thing.
I have hit every wall imaginable but wont give up. Someone somewhere will help me. Its Gods will. There is a reason why I am still hear and it's a big reason. Can anyone help me please? I am terrified and devastated that this has changed my quality of life so much. Please help guide me to someone that will just listen.
