Eduardo is a heart transplant recipient. He is 62 years old and has been affected by heart strokes since 2008. He was in Mexico back then and had to wait 5 months for the required equipment to be fixed in order to have two stents set into his heart arteries.
This was a major event and a life-changing experience that made him look into his spiritual nature. Then in 2016, he had other minor heart events, and it was until February 2017 he had another major stroke which required the placement of another three stents on the back arteries of the heart. The period of the next months after this procedure was very hard for Eduardo, he couldn’t breathe, he could barely walk and of course, he couldn’t work. His major goal was to make it to his eldest son’s wedding, which he did. He went into the ER and here doctors found out his lungs were full of water due to a weak heart condition (atrial fibrosis). This period, he could only sleep for one or two hours per night. When at the ER, he was drained 17 pounds of fluids from its body in one day. His Ejection Fraction had come down from 45% to around 35% in a short period of time. I a month he’s Ejection fraction had gone to 25%, that’s when his Cardiologist decided to send him to the transplant team at UCSD Health System in San Diego.
Leopoldo had all kinds of lab exams, CAT scans, Ultrasounds, interviews, Right Heart CAT at least once a month. He was admitted to the heart transplant waiting list in March 2019. He was having all kinds of exams and analysis in order to keep excellent supervision on his condition. It turns out, his Ejection Fraction came to almost 20%.
He was still without an income, and mainly his sons and some friends helped him and his wife Patricia get some periodic income.
He received a call on Sunday, February 12, and was pretty nervous, went into the hospital, and was fortunate that on the first opportunity, he got his new heart. There was a BIG Angel granting him his Second Chance to live. Thank you so so much my Amazing Donor.

6 MONTHS!!! THANKS…To GOD, to you who has been with me by my side, to you who has supported me, your calls are a treasure to me, your visits are truly immense love showings, your financial support is like a great debt of love. To you DONOR, there are no words to thank you, we are ONE now. To my Angel who takes care of my day by day. To my brothers, sisters and mother. My friends/brothers who have been incredible in every way. To our sons and daughters who, now I know why GOD has lent them to us. . To all those anonymous souls who have been my saviors. To the army of light who have been with me every moment. To the Master. To my incredible doctors, nurses, technicians, lab staff, front desk people, all the medical team who has been so loving and professional. To LIFE for showing me how beautiful is having you, to Death also, because I accept you as part of me. To sickness, because without you I couldn’t appreciate like this the real meaning of HEALTH, of the big-little daily acts that I couldn’t fully appreciate. To PAIN I’ve gone through because, in my beautiful moments, I value what is not to have it. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.. ❤ ❤ ❤
