Author CS Lewis said, “Something deep in the human heart breaks at the thought of a life of mediocrity.” For Chris Riedy, nothing could be more true.

Chris has made great strides in the last 10 days, but these do not come without setbacks. It was a little rough this weekend and he ended up back in the ER. Thankfully his new heart was able to correct it’s own rhythm and we were able to go home early Sunday morning. This did not discourage him and he worked hard all week with PT and OT. He is a fighter and understands that there will be some obstacles in the road ahead. We got to Penn on 8/17 for his next biopsy to make sure that there are no signs of rejection. So far the last two have shown zero signs of rejection thanks to my husband strictly taking all 64 pills everyday! The transplant meds, travel to Penn with overnights for biopsy’s and medical bills have been coming in for payment. If you can help us ease the financial burden of this wonderful gift of life, please donate to his campaign. Help hope live is a nonprofit organization and your donation is tax deductible. It takes a village to help our family through this. One thing that we would like to do is let our friends and kids friends that donated know that we wholeheartedly thank you. We also thank everyone that reaches out to Chris to send well wishes. Those are just as heartwarming as a donation. He enjoys seeing the encouraging words, it makes his day and keeps him motivated!
