I suffered my first heart attack in 2010, barely alive flown to UCLA and then put on a medication regiment for seven years. During a trip to Washington State for a vacation I got very sick and my life took a turn for worse. After that I had many trips to several hospitals. When things were looking really grim I was flown to UCLA again and finally received the gift of a Heart on June 11th. 2017.

Since the heart transplant I have been doing very well with only a couple of medication changes. I hope to meet my donor family in Los Angeles on April 7th, 2019. Words cannot describe my gratitude for my donor and his family, who gave me a second chance of life. I currently volunteer for the Nevada Donor Network.
