heART Transplant Show


As I’ve written in the past, I’ve been very blessed on my heart transplant journey, by having, for the most part, decent insurance which has been a true blessing in helping pay for the expensive anti-rejection medications I must take to stay alive, as well as the procedures we must endure on a regular basis.

Others are not as fortunate in regard to insurance and their medications. However, at my transplant center, a number of years ago, a visionary heart recipient started a fund to help those without insurance pay for their medications. This fund, the Helping Hearts Fund, has been a blessing for a lot of people. I have donated to the fund in the past, and I will again.

I’ve also written about my love of “art” within these posts in the past. I truly admire those that can paint a portrait or sculpt, or compose and / or play a song …… they have a gift or gifts that I would love to acquire ……. but, alas, I have other abilities …… I can paint a room or a house, even a car …… but I can’t take a brush and a canvass and create.

So, what’s the point of the above paragraphs?

I was recently honored to attend an art show at a local gallery in which the artists set a side an entire weekend and donated not only their gallery, but also their skills, their works of art to help fund the “Helping Hearts Fund”. While I admit, I don’t know what does or doesn’t make any work of art good …. I do know what I like. And all of the paintings were awesome.

The show was titled ….. “it’s all about the heART”.

These folks had LOTS of heART, that’s for sure!!

    My two and a half year old niece just have a heart transplant on tuesday. I came across your site while searching how to help them fianically. Can you please tell me more about the fund set up for those with no insurance. They have none. My sister just moved on monday the day before the call came in. She had a job lined up in the new town but now the job is giving her a hard time and basically from what I understand she is now unemployed. The child’s name is Savana.She is currently at the Arkansas Children’s hospital. You can find her page on facebook that my other sister created if you search for A Heart for Sanava Sky. We as a family are trying to find a way to ease the cost and help them out. If you have any ideas or suggestions for us that would help. I thank you. Gina
