Brady NEEDS another HEART!!!!

Brady was born on August 23, 1994, with multiple heart problems including Aortic stenosis, mitral valve prolapse, cardiomyopathy and other complications causing him to stay in the hospital for 84 days. Once he was able to go home he was on heart medications for the next 7 years.  At which time he was told that he outgrew his medications and his tests showed he did well so he didn't need the medications anymore. In the spring of 2002, he was cleared to play Baseball and automatically fell in love with the game. Baseball has been his life from that year on. He was cleared to play all the way through school until June of 09 when he found out he had to have a heart transplant. (more detailed information video will be posted in the links) Brady got put in the transplant list on October 16th, 2009 and got his new heart on November 27th, 2009. After the heart transplant, he did great. He even got to play ball through his high school years. Fast forward to the year of his 10-year anniversary of having his new heart! Brady went into his routine bi-yearly checkup and they found hardening in the main artery on the inside his heart on August 6th of this year. It has been a roller coaster of dr appointments and questions not being answered! His last appointment on September 26th he was told that within the next 3-6 months he WILL be put on the transplant list and WILL need a new heart shortly after that or his heart WILL HARDEN UP ON HIM and he will DIE!!!

Oklahoma Health Care Authority's Story on Brady 

I am making his page in the hope to get him and His wife some help financially. He can not (per doctors orders) work at all. he has restrictions of no lifting and no bending or pulling. They want to start a little cardio but nothing more than a brisk walk. His wife Shayla is a full-time student who helps with her nieces all while working around his crazy doctor schedules. As of right now, they are living off a very minimum amount of income that doesn't even help pay all the bills let alone help with doctor appointments in OKC!


There will be many more appointments and times where they have to stay down in OKC for the appointments and have nowhere to stay or money for hotels. 

He will need help with Gas, foods, bills, hotels, insurances, co-pays, and any other pop up related expenses.  

Please donate if you can, any amount will help! if you can not donate PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE share Brady's story so we can get at least this part of his stress eased!!!!
