Hi, my name is James Gray and I am in need of a heart transplant. I was born with a weak heart and in my 30’s my heart started having complications. I have been in a coma for 3 to 4 days while they were draining 6 litters of fluid out of me because of a weak heart. I only have 10% of my heart function; so they put in an LVAD “heart pump” when I was 46 because my heart was to weak to pump. I have had an infection on my drive line that caused me to die. I have to wear a 5 pound “man purse” around my neck for the past 4 years that holds the batteries and the small “brain” that runs the LVAD. The only hope I have for a long life is a heart transplant. I am also diabetic, had my knee replace twice, at this point I have had 20 surgeries just to keep going! Here is a letter from Vanderbilt letting you know why we really need your help. Thank you sooooooo much!!!!

This begging for money is hard but so is the thought of leaving my family behind if I die. I am trying to find a job and so far the goodwill may be an option. I filled out an application and I do hope I get the job to help with money. It is disappointing that I will be working for for less then $7.50 an hr I have not brought home that kinda money since I was a teen. Limited choices makes me desperate for an answer with not easy way out!
