My name is Jeffery & I need your help.
I never thought at the age of 46 I would need a heart transplant. I have chosen to partner with the nonprofit Help Hope Live Foundation, to help fund-raise for my out of pocket expenses that will go along with receiving my transplant. This includes helping to pay for my caregivers, whom have had to quit their jobs to care for me on a daily basis & will have to continue to support me in the future. In addition to supporting my caregivers, I will also need assistance for food, lodging and transportation, Co-pays, Prescription costs, Rehabilitation, and keeping my home in La Junta where my wife still resides, while I am required to stay in Denver.

1.31.20 Jeff ended up in the hospital after his first post Echo Cardiogram. At 8 weeks post surgery, they found a dangerous blood clot, the size of a dime. It was too close to his heart/pump, near his Inflow Canula. Thankfully the Cardio team was able to put him on a regimen that dissipated the clot. His medications have changed, poor guy has to give himself shots twice a day to keep his blood thinned out to a therapeutic level. The Warfarin was not working properly.
I got to bring him home yesterday. A week in the hospital can take a toll on a patients mental well being. It’s helpful to be with family and those that love you. We are all thankful that he can come home to wait for a new heart and that he doesn’t have to stay in the hospital indefinitely.
Please consider donating to help him take care of expenses. $5, $10, $20. It all adds up. No amount is too little.
