Scott Denney is only 56 years-old, and desperately needs a lifesaving heart transplant. Over the past seven years, Scott has encountered two major heart attacks and five major heart surgeries. In 2014, Scott was diagnosed with a severe case of cardiomyopathy, and is now in end-stage-heart-disease. Scott’s cardiologist has informed him that a heart transplant is his only hope for survival. The most recent heart surgery in 2014, involved implantation of an LVAD (left ventricular assist device) that helps pump Scott’s blood throughout his body. Technically, Scott has no pulse or even blood pressure, as the LVAD is keeping him alive. Scott’s life is very limiting as the LVAD causes fatigue and exhaustion. While managing life with the temporary LVAD, Scott is enthusiastic to receive his new heart through his upcoming transplant.
Scott is a true family man who has worked hard his whole life to support his family. He grew up in a small eastern Oregon town of John Day, where he loved to participate in sports and the outdoors. With a lifelong career as a commercial real estate broker, Scott is proud to have worked for the golfer, Jack Nicklaus, and partnering on a golf course community in central Oregon. He has been married to his wife Cathy for over 33 years, and they have four wonderful children; Zach, Mallorie, Mychal and Natalie, who are committed to seeing their dad though his transplant. Scott is even looking forward to meeting his first grandchild due this December.

CONGRATULATIONS are in order for Scott. Scott received the gift-of-life through a new heart this past July at Cedars-Sinai Hospital. Scott continues to recover each day, and is living in San Diego. Scott is determined to move back to Oregon the end of October, but is still facing monumental out-of-pocket medical and post-transplant expenses. Scott even looks forward to meeting his new grandaughter, Margot when he returns to Oregon. Please consider a donation to help defray the costs and expenses Scott is facing. Thank you ahead of time for your thoughtful donation.

CONGRATULATIONS are in order for Scott who has been officially listed for his heart transplant, on December 31st! After extensive medical testing and patiently waiting for approval, Scott has been actively placed on the heart transplant list at Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego, California.Unfortunately, with Scott’s type O-positive blood, finding a suitable heart donor that is a perfect match for Scott is much more difficult with his blood type. As a result, finding a donor could take up to a year, and Scott will need to be closely monitored. Caregiver fees, medications, co-pays and deductibles, and doctor’s appointment fees are adding up quickly for Scott.While he patiently waits for the telephone call that will save his life, Scott is asking for your continued thoughts, prayers and financial donation to help with his out-of-pocket expenses.Thank you ahead of time for your continued generosity, love and support during this difficult time.
