Malcolm's Heart Journey

Diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure. Malcolm's family health history includes heart conditions on both sides of the family. The mother's side experienced Congestive Heart Failure, the father's side experienced Marfan Syndrome, which in some cases causes the enlargement of the Aorta Root.

Malcolm experienced health issues from both sides of his family. In 2011 he had Aorta Root repaired due to an enlarged heart. Thank God his Aunt Marcia urge him to get checked due to the family history.

In 2012 Malcolm was diagnosed with congestive heart failure, which was life-changing. Adjusting to taking medication and revising his diet; proved to be overwhelming, resulting in a decline in his health.

In 2014, Malcolm experienced an ejection fraction, which is the measurement of the percentage of blood leaving your heart each time it contracts. The ejection fraction measurement decreased to 13%. As a result, this decline in his health required him to be on the heart transplant list. In 2015 he had a severe open-heart surgery that changed our family life to this day. He had an LVAD placement surgery to operate as a heart because his heart was severely damaged.

LVAD Heart Journey
Malcolm’s heart journey required severe surgery, in and out of the hospital, he contracted a severe infection that added to his heart challenges; consistent care for Malcolm has been and continues to be an uphill battle. Malcolm was taken off of the transplant list for a year.
