I sustained infective endocarditis from dental work done at Perryville because they refused pre-treatment antibiotics. knowing that I have heart valve problems. This caused damage to my aortic root. Aortic root surgery is very grave and risky. The Mayo Clinic only performs 150 of these procedures per year, in the whole country. To make things worse, the surgeon will have to replace a valve, plus fix the aortic root.

When I went to the ER last month, the doctor told me a needed immediate open heart surgery. I’m only 50, why do I have to die?!
