Efrain Sotomayor is only 50 years-old, and he desperately needs a heart transplant. March, 2014 while driving on the Interstate, Efrain stopped to help a woman and her child in a broken down car. Her car was out of gas, so Efrain pushed the car all the way to the next exit and down the ramp into a gas station. As a result, when he returned to his own car, he couldn’t catch his breath, and began coughing and gasping for air. With heavy chest pain, Efrain went to the ER and was diagnosed with a massive heart attack, and had lost significant heart function. The damage to his heart is irreversible, and Efrain now needs a lifesaving heart transplant, or his time will soon run out.
Efrain has been through extensive medical testing and is now an active candidate for a heart transplant at Tampa General Hospital, in Tampa, Florida. His wife, Laura and three children stand by his side and are ready to support him through his upcoming surgery. More than ever, Efrain wishes to return to work as an auto mechanic, and volunteer as a Deacon of his Church. He has been unable to work since his accident.
