A gentleman and his wife were immigrating to the USA. They landed here on July 26, 2021. On August 14th night, he was admitted to the JFK medical center ER because he was not well. We found out he had suffered a major heart attack, he was then transported to Hackensack Hospital for an emergency triple bypass. He is currently fighting for his life, while we are waiting to get him admittance to Columbia Hospital for a heart transplant. He does not have health insurance, as he was supposed to start his new job on Aug 22, 2021. Without health insurance, Columbia Hospital is not taking him. He comes from a very small town – Jetpur, Gujarat, where he was a teacher. He is in no economic condition to afford any medical care or buy health insurance. Getting him to Columbia ASAP is key to keeping him alive. His only son is in India. We appreciate you taking the time to read this and appreciate any help we can get.
