Our father Juan Rivera desperately needs your help.
Our father’s long battle with heart problems started about 12 years ago and has come to a critical point. Our father is now in heart failure and needs a heart transplant to survive. Due to the cost of a heart transplant and the insurance he has does not cover all of the treatments expenses, my father was treated instead with the (LVAD) a mechanical heart pump that is used in patients who have reached end-stage heart failure on October 12, 2021. We’re asking the community, family, and friends to join us in fundraising for the nonprofit Help Hope Live to help with critical expenses my father will face immediately after surgery, including the cost of his life long medications.
