Family and friends of John Ball are raising money for the nonprofit Help Hope Live to fund uninsured medical expenses associated with heart transplantation. John is married and the father of 4, he also has 6 1/2 grandchildren the 1/2 is due soon. I was diagnosed with heart failure in 2014. I got my new heart on September 19. My wife and I have to stay close to the hospital for about 3 months which means we have to pay rent here and take care of our bills at home. My dream is to get to see all of my children and grandchildren together so I can do a photo shoot of them. I am a photographer and haven’t been able to do this because of my heart.

John has chosen to fundraise for Help Hope Live in part because Help Hope Live assures fiscal accountability of funds raised and tax deductibility for contributors. Contributors can be sure donations will be used to pay or reimburse medical and related expenses. To make a tax-deductible donation to this fundraising campaign, click on the Give button.
