Barnett awaits double transplant at Vanderbilt

Elizabeth Lynne Burrus Barnett

“I know that I am lucky to have seen my 40s, but I want more time.”

41-year-old Elizabeth Burrus Barnett has been living in the hospital for more than 40 days while she waits for a life-saving heart and liver transplant.

Community support is a critical lifeline to Elizabeth, her husband, and her two children. Says her mother:

“People in this community have just been wonderful.”

In addition to hundreds of cards, gifts, and care packages, donations are pouring in to assist with transplant-related expenses.

“I have a lot of motivation to help me fight and survive…I just need some financial assistance along the way.”
