I am writing to you on behalf of my husband, David “Greg” Brown. As you may know, in 2002 Greg came down with a virus that attacked his heart.
He was diagnosed with viral cardiomyopathy in January of 2003. Though Greg vowed that his illness would not define him, his failing health forced him to stop working in October of 2006. Greg continued to fight the effects of the disease by staying active in the lives of his children and friends. However, in 2009 Greg’s heart would no longer function well enough to support any activity. Greg was very fortunate to be a qualified candidate for a left ventricular assist device (L-VAD). The surgery and device gave Greg an additional two years of life that he might not have otherwise had. Unfortunately that device is no longer functioning properly and Greg now needs a heart transplant to survive. He is currently on the waiting list for a heart transplant at University of Virginia Hospital.
