Fun-Loving, Loyal Sibling, Awesome Son

In early May 2019, Alan suffered a heart attack that was initially un-diagnosed for twelve hours. He had thrown a clot and this began his journey to and through heart failure, LVAD, and transplant.

July 27 – we got word that we can return home from 2 **MONTHS** living in Scottsdale after the LVAD installation in May .. It’s been a rollercoaster, but he’s doing so very well. He’s living with the VAD == and that’s the key== he’s LIVING.

With COVID, being able to visit with family and friends has been difficult at best, and generally impossible.. Going home by the first week of August will be a welcome refresh and be able to reconnect with family and friends.

We want to thank everyone for all their support through the beginnings of this journey — and we are just at the beginning. Many more years ahead is the hope

Alan has been released from MAYO as of June 9. 48 days in the hospital in Phoenix.. 3 days prior to that in Tucson before Banner UMC transferred him up to MAYO.. He’s doing really well (or they would not have released him!! LOL).

But we do have a long road still ahead of us. The potential for meds not being covered… The potential for more appointments in Phoenix rather than at home in Tucson (and the expenses incurred with that travel….) We still need your help.. Any and all little bit helps == and spreading the word around for others to donate will also help..
