Transplant Type: Heart & Kidney
What if you were living on borrowed time?
Stenneth Brown has been given a second chance at life. On August 19, 2020, he was diagnosed with giant cell myocarditis. This is a rare cardiovascular disorder without a known cause. His condition deteriorated quickly, and doctors said a heart and kidney transplant was critical for his survival. Luckily, he received his transplant on September 28, 2020!
Despite his recent health obstacles, Stenneth is grateful to have a loving and supportive family. His wife, their family, and friends, have been by his side every step of the way. Before his health began to decline, Stenneth enjoyed gardening, fixing things, and spending time with his loved ones, but his health condition took away his ability to do all of these things. Stenneth looks forward to recovering fully from his transplant so that he can live a normal life again, but right now, he needs your help.
Unfortunately, Stenneth’s new life comes at a very high price.
Even though Stenneth’s surgery has already taken place, and his insurance covered a portion of the transplant cost, he still faces significant medical expenses related to the surgery. He will continue to need a lifetime of follow-up care and daily anti-rejection medications, which are as critical to his survival as the transplant itself. At this time in his transplant journey, Stenneth needs help to afford the expensive prescriptions and care needed to keep his new heart and kidney functioning.
You can help by making a tax-deductible donation to the National Foundation for Transplants in honor of Stenneth.
