The picture of me is in hospital having treatment with a CPAP machine. At the age of 47 now 50 years old, I was diagnosed and currently treated for Ischemic cardiomyopathy, severe triple vessel disease. My heart function is 19%. I have a stent in my left artery and my right artery is blocked. This is managed by medication, I am not a candidate for any surgery as I am considered too high risk, my next step for a healthy heart and life is a heart transplant.
With the cost of my medication and on a SASSA disability benefit, I'm finding it difficult to raise the money for a CPAP machine as I have severe Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) which puts more strain on my heart. A CPAP machine will provide me with continues positive airway pressure and eliminate my breathing pauses caused by obstructive sleep apnea and have less stress on my heart. At this moment all I'm looking for are ways to have a better quality of life.
