Last 2008 I was completing my college requirements and that includes my medical certificate. So I had the general medical done. Then I got a call from the registrar that I need to go to the college doctor first for the explanation of my medical result. And that was the day that the doctor told me that I have a Rheumatic Heart Disease and since his an IM doctor he gave me some prescription and I was advice to see a Cardiologist. Since I was just 17 by that time, I was in denial that I have that heart disease. I didn't drink the medicines then moved on with my life. Then I worked with a call center company. Not until 2015, I had my first minor heart attack. And lost my job. Then I was advised by my doctor to have my medicines again. I had experienced miscarriages as well. Then last September of 2019 I had another heart attack and I was advised that I need to have a heart surgery to extend my life and drink my maintenance medicines in time. This is a new challenge for me because I have to go to the Larger Hospital for me to have a check up and inquire how much is the Heart surgery.
We don't have that much money for me to go to the city to have my check up. Then COVID-19 is the new challenge. Until now its I didn't have a chance to go to the PHILIPPINE HEART CENTER to have my check up because we don't have that much money for the transportation and also for the Laboratories.
I'm only 30 years old and I still wanted to live longer with my husband and have a child in the future.
I am asking your kind hearts for help. Please help me with my heart surgery and check ups.
Thank you and May God Bless You All!
