A heart for Garrett

4/18/2008:

heart-for-garrett.jpgI’m sure some of you may have seen this story about a young boy who has gone through three heart transplants. The family is trying to raise some money to cover the out-of-pocket expenses. A Hoboken411 reader suggested I post this to see if anyone would be willing to help them out.

“As many of you may know, a dear friend of ours child has just undergone his 2nd heart transplant at the age of 8. My husband Doug is doing a fundraiser for the family as the first one cost them a quarter of a million dollars in out of pocket expenses, and that was 8 years ago. Doug has also started a blog… the father is a very inspirational writer, and if you have some time (not during work hours!) please take a minute to read a couple. Doug will be riding his motorcycle to Denver on Memorial Day weekend to present them with a check. Our hopes are that we can raise $25,000. Anything you can do to help will be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you”

So where do we send the check? As a father of a one year old, this story is heartbreaking . . . I can’t imagine what this family is going through.

411, the picture speaks volumes about how sick Garrett is.
Compassion please, everyone.
