Please Help Kurtis Get A New Heart!
Kurtis Kosmann is only 24 years-old and facing the battle of his life! Kurtis was born with a medical condition known as Becker’s Muscular Dystrophy; an inherited disorder causing progressive muscle weakness, difficulty walking, breathing problems, skeletal deformities, muscle cramps and even major heart issues. Sixty percent of boys with the diagnosis of Beckers, go on to develop cardiomyopathy, and will eventually need a heart transplant. In Kurtis’s case, the progression of Becker’s disease caused him to face major heart complications, and he is now facing congestive heart failure. His cardiologist has informed him that without a lifesaving heart transplant, he will soon run out of time. Kurtis desperately needs your help in order to survive, and without a life-sustaining transplant he will soon run out of options!

Kurtis was injured in a fall on June 1st, fainted in the morning due to his blood pressure being too low. He hit his head and went unconscious for a minute. Very scary for all of us.
He just got out of the hospital last night and is doing much better.
He medications were keeping his blood pressure too low and dehydrating him too much.
We are hoping that by the end of June or before, Kurtis will be healthy enough to go home to Idaho for a break, to see family and friends.
Thank you for your continued prayers and donations!
