On February 9th Terrance Quincy Jones received the telephone call that would save his life and bring him a brighter tomorrow. At only 36 years of age, and after suffering for many years from a progressive form of cardiomyopathy, that he apparently contracted while serving overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan, Terrance was told that he would need a lifesaving heart transplant.
Terrance served his country as a crew chief on Blackhawk helicopters in the United States Army for many years. He served tirelessly in Iraq fighting for the freedom of the United States, risking both his life and his health. He later served his country as a contractor in Afghanistan supporting his brothers in arms. His severe heart failure and cardiomyopathy was said to most likely be a direct result of exposure to a range of environmental and chemical hazards in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I just want to say that GOD is good! My son has awesome Angels watching over him in Heaven and on earth. Not only does he have donors that have committed to help him financially monthly (which is invaluable) Florida Hospital has forgiven $7,328.42 of his current debt! That is just for the hospital and the physician bills keep rolling in. It is still a huge blessing that I felt I needed to share with those that are following Terrance.
Terrance is currently in Cardiac Rehab and is doing much better. He had a small stroke during his transplant that affected the use of his left hand. They are also helping him in therapy with that issue. Things are starting to look up and I have all of you to thank. Thank You!!!!

I want to extend my sincerest gratitude and thankfulness for all the prayers and support that have been given to my son and I during this very trying time in our lives.
It has been 81 days since my son had his heart transplant. He gave us a scare in the beginning and had to be re-hospitalized. He is now out of the hospital and is doing well. He is getting stronger every day. He still has a long way to go but he has a good team of physicians and a lot of people that care about him and love him. Things are looking up. Thank you again.

Hey Soldier, God is smiling on you! He still has work for you to do. Take time to completely heal, then get back to work "GI"!
