No one should have to beg to live, but this is what an American is reduced to if they have a preexisting condition and a health crisis.  Twenty-seven year old Eric De La Cruz is diagnosed with weeks to live, but his doctors say that’s an optimistic time frame. KTNV reports:

Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails has raised a stunning $266,860 in less than 24 hours.   The word “miraculous” comes to mind, but the cost of a heart transplant is $780,000.

You can track the story at Eric’s sister’s website and at We Love Eric (dot) com.

This morning #Eric became an official Twitter trend.

Thanks to all of you who have answered with support via thoughts, prayers, petitioning and donations.  If you do any of your own posts on the story, drop me a link.
