Please help us raise funds urgently needed to pay off the medical expenses for Pastor Damion Lewis heart treatment

My dear brother and your friend, Pastor Damion Lewis, needs your help urgently!

Damion was born with a severe heart condition. Since, recently he has been suffering gravely from this illness. Since June 2018, Damion had suffered a minor heart attack and since then he has been experiencing congestive heart failure. His heart ejection fraction is pumping at 20% instead of 50%.

In August, he was diagnosed with dilated Cardiomyopathy, which almost took his life. Damion's fighting spirit and unyielding faith in God has given him another chance at life. 

He has been hospitalized over 5 weeks now and is in the third hospital in Jamaica receiving treatment.

Pastor Lewis has to stay in hospital until he is fully stabilized. In addition, he has to do a critical heart test (Coronary Angiogram) on Tuesday, September 11, 2018. This will inform the doctors as to which of two major surgeries he will have to undergo. His options for surgeries are Heart Bypass or Heart Transplant. 

Any of the surgeries that will be decided will have to be done urgently because the medications that he is presently receiving has their own side effects on his other organs.  The treatments have incurred a massive medical bill that has become overbearing on the family. As a result, we are kindly asking for your assistance. 

Our current goal is to cover the accrued medical expenses. We will increase this goal as soon as a decision is made as to the type of surgery to be performed. It is expected that this amount will increase tremendously, seeing that the surgery will have to be done overseas.

Our need for donations is urgent seeing that the medical bill that has already been incurred need to be paid now, and in addition the surgery needs to be done immediately.

Damion is a man of God who works assiduously, preaching and teaching God's love to reach the hearts of many. He is desperately fighting for his life and needs your help now. Please help us in this fight to save his life.

Please share this page and spread the word so we can raise the necessary fund to get my brother back on his feet.

On behalf of Pastor Damion Lewis and the family, thank you very much!

The Angiogram was done and the result is normal. This means that there is no narrowing or blockage of his coronary arteries.

The doctors are still focused on finding out what is causing his chest pains, so yesterday he did a Heart scan. We are waiting for the report on his heart rhythm.

Please continue to pray for him and the doctors.

Travel plans for Damion are on hold.

Due to a recent episode of severe chest pains and shortness of breath, which the Cardiologist believes is due to blockage of the arteries, an emergency Angiogram has been scheduled for Monday 11am. If during this test procedure they find that there is 70% or more blockage, he will undergo a surgery called Angioplasty. If there are multiple blockages then he will have to do an open heart surgery.

We receive your continued prayers and support with love.

Sincerely,
Tanisha
