Please join us in the support of a ‘Change of Heart for Dyno Dan Holmes’.
Many of you know that in August 2003 Dan was diagnosed with Cardio Myopathy. Against all odds and defying the willingness to give up he has overcome many ailments and complications through time. Fortunately the time has come, Dan has been cleared and is now active on the heart transplant list. As GOD has big plans and our faith relies heavily on him, there are many other expenses to be incurred with this procedure. Most noted is the expense of the rejection medications. We ask that you join Dan and Family in this journey and assist in any way you feel.

On July 23 we headed to Indy for Dan’s monthly checkup with his Cardiologist. Much to our surprise doctor told him it was time to be admitted into the hospital and was time to make a decision. If he didn’t agree to be admitted doctor said “Dan you won’t live 30 days without help”! At first he was told that he couldn’t get the LVAD device and the Heart Transplant wasn’t an option at this time because he was not strong enough to make it through the surgery. Fast forward a week and the Surgeon comes in and asks “You ready for having a LVAD (also known as The Bridge to Transplant) device?” So on August 5 at 4:00 p.m.he goes into surgery. It was a success!
At this time I finally have him home and he has been placed on the Inactive Heart Transplant List until he has healed up completely. Can be 2 to 6 months till that happens.
