Team Heart Of Faith For Robin
My name is Robin Bennett; I am a 46
years of age and a mother of two sons. My oldest son is 20 years old and is
currently a sophomore at Alabama A & M University. My youngest son is 9
years of age and currently in the 4th grade at Phenix City Elementary School.
My children are my world, and I am determined by God’s grace to live to see
them become respectable young men in society. I am striving to be here to see
them in the future as role models for their families someday.
I was diagnosed originally with
Peripartum Cardiomyopathy. As a result, I lost my heart function. It is not
uncommon during most pregnancies; however, after childbirth some women’s heart
function returns to normal. Mine did not. My heart is currently functioning
at 15 to 17% Ejection Fraction (EF). As of this current date my diagnosis is
Advanced Stage IV Systolic Congestive Hearted Failure due to Dilated
After several years of medication
management and many hospitalizations, the function of my heart is rapidly
changing. Since I have experienced so many recent hospitalizations, I have been
referred back to St. Joseph at Emory Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia. I have
been recently placed on a Milrinone IV pump 24 hours per day. They
continue to advise me that my heart is getting weaker. A plan has been
put into place for me as it has been determined I am in need of a heart
transplant. In the event that my Milrinone does not work, a bridge to
transplant is in place. It is called an LVAD (Heart Pump), as the next form of
treatment. This device will be placed inside my chest until a heart becomes
I am totally disabled and cannot
work; however, my benefits will not cover the things I would need to be
considered for the heart transplant list. I have to travel to Emory for
my medical care. Some might ask why I don’t move to Atlanta. However, between
my income, the expenses of medication and the cost of living, this is not
possible. If I am given an LVAD procedure, it will require me to depend
upon others to be with me at all times. Each procedure will require me to spend
long periods of time in Atlanta as recommended by physicians. All procedures
require increased medications to maintain the heart. Weekly visit and
biopsy procedures will be conducted as recommended. With the L.V.A.D
caregivers are to be fluently trained by Emory staff to be able to care for
me. This can be overwhelming at times.
I am currently in need of a heart
transplant. I am raising money to be listed for transplant, medications,
travel, lodging for lengthy periods of time, care giving and insurance
deductibles due to medical expenses, etc.
Please, help me be listed for
transplant. We are not certain of a number to determine a true goal to
cover this entire process, but we are asking that you help me meet my current
goal. My family and I are making a plea on my behalf for any financial
assistance and contributions to help me meet my goals for
