Misty Needs a Heart Transplant!
Misty Jacobsen, a wonderful mother and friend, desperately needs our help! Misty suffers from a rare genetic condition, known as familial cardiomyopathy. In order to survive, Misty needs a heart transplant. She is one of five close family members to have this severe condition; and unfortunately the last survivor. At the age of 17, Misty’s youngest child received a heart transplant in 2009, but sadly passed away due to donor antibody rejection syndrome. Misty has also lost her father, her sister and her brother due to this horrific and deadly genetic condition of the heart. Misty is running out of time and needs your help to survive.

Hello everyone! I am excited to share with you all that on March 20,2015, I received the amazing gift of a new heart!
The road has been long, and I have had a few setbacks, but I hope to be on my way to recovery. Thank you to all those who have financially supported me. My needs for support continues as my frequent. Biopsies continue. I am still unable to work and expect to be in financial dire straights for the next year. I hope you will find it in your own hearts to continue to support my campaign any way you can.
With much gratitude,

GREAT NEWS!!!! On March 19,2015 we got the call Misty had been waiting for ........There was a new heart for her!! On March 20, 2015 the successful heart transplant operation was preformed. Since that date to today (March 31st) Misty has been in ICU. Her body is accepting the new heart but there are many other complications. Most complications are related to the fact that Misty had a weak heart all of her life and as a result over the years her body made adjustments to compensate for it. Now that she has a healthy heart the adjustments that her body made need to be reversed. Until that happens she continues to suffer with very high blood pressure, a low heart beat and very severer headaches! Please continue to keep Misty in your prayers and consider helping with her medical expenses. Her road will be a long and winding up hill climb for some time to come ..........BUT now (thanks be to GOD, the donor and the medical teams) at least she is on the road to recovery! Thank you and GOD bless!!
