Two thousand dollars has been raised in the last 24 hours on Eric’s behalf! I’ve learned it’ll take $148 thousand more to get Eric on the transplant list. A heart transplant costs $780,000. The numbers seem insurmountable. Yet, I have faith anyway. I learned from the writer Herman Hesse in his book Siddhartha that loving is the most important thing that we will ever do as people. I believe it. And I believe one person can be all people. We’ve all read at least dozens of times from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be.”
Veronica forwarded this note this morning:
If you have a facebook, myspace page or twitter account, please get this out there.
Also, please forward it to as many people as you know.
I also need help with a few things:
- we are making tshirts to sell to fundraise, does anyone know a tshirt co? American Apparel perhaps?
- I need help working phones, scouring internet
- well-connected people willing to help fundraise.
In the past 24 hours we’ve raised 2k. A heart transplant is 780k. If we get at least 150k then we can get him on the list and hopefully I will be able to get his disability for him. Doctors say time is running out for him and we need to get him to a hospital where they can at least give him an LVAD or defibrillator. He is on 3 IV’s and that is the only thing keeping him alive. I don’t want to move him, but have to. I am scared to do this. I will have to race him to LA and to the ER. My heart is breaking. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
Please help in any way you can. I thank you.
An amazing stranger created this website for Eric last night:
and a tough guy from the Bronx found his heart (though he’ll never say so):
This looks like the beginning of a momentum! That’s what my heart hopes. No heartfelt wish is too inconsequential. No donation is too meager. No post or link or kind word will go unappreciated.
