Have a heart? Bennett needs one!

Marvin (MC) Bennett was born with a congenital heart defect. When he was a less than a year old he had a mustard procedure that saved his life.  This procedure switched his valves around.  The procedure was expected to last only so long so we are grateful that he has come this far.  However, Bennett now is in dire need of a heart.  He is in CVICU at the University of Iowa Hospital waiting.  His wife Kat lives in Des Moines and is trying to be as present as possible but still needs to continue to work.  We are asking for any help with travel expenses to and from Iowa City.  Each trip cost around $75.00 when you take into consideration gas, food and parking.....  That's doesn't include overnight stays or boarding their four legged child, Blue.
THANK YOU!!!!!!
