Eric Needs a Heart Transplant

Eric De La Cruz is 27 years old, and is in dire need of a heart transplant.

Eric has been turned down for a heart transplant list because he is on Medicaid, and there are no transplant facilities in Nevada.

Eric needs to go to California under the Medicare Disability program. He has been rejected twice, and the next appeal hearing is in one year.

Eric has Severe Dilated Cardiomyopathy with an EF of 15%. His kidneys are having trouble because of his heart. His creatinine levels are high, his blood pressure is very low and he keeps retaining fluid. The medications that his doctors have him on are no longer working. He is currently on 3 different IVs.

Projected costs of Eric's transplant are to exceed $150,000. As of this video's production, $4,000 has been raised. We have a long road ahead of us. Even if you can only spare a dollar or two, please donate.

If you can't donate, please help spread the word. Send this video to everyone you know. Thank You.
