I am writing to you on behalf of my brother, David Hendricks, a grateful 58-year-old recent heart transplant recipient. He was a journeyman meat cutter for 30 years, starting out in high school as a clean-up boy and retiring as the head meat cutter. David has been disabled with congestive heart failure for 11 years.
Six months ago, his heart condition worsened significantly and he spent several months in the hospital. Fortunately he was given a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) that enabled him to improve his health and provided the necessary bridge to his transplant. Within days of being placed on the transplant list, he received the life-giving call. Today, he is functioning ahead of the curve medically, but faces the challenge of ongoing transplant related medical expenses including a lifetime of immunosuppressive drugs.
