    Hi Katie, sorry I have been off  grid for  while, I have been in  hospital most of time to stablize my heart. My doctors have EF up to 35%, but the new drugs  they have me on makes hard for me to communicate thoughts. With EF up I now don't qualify for transplant list and now insurance company will not approve  cancer treatments. Will try to keep updated best I can.

We have a few resources that might be able to help you navigate the insurance company if it helps at all.  Patient Advocate Network and Patient Advocate Foundation. Please let me know if you need anything else. Best Katie
