Heart Surgery

My brother, Drew, was born with a congenital heart defect that Mayo Clinic was able to treat when he was an infant. Unfortunately, heart surgeries don't last forever and it is time for him to receive a new operation that will extend his life by many years, memories, and smiles.

I'm no doctor, but as I understand it, Drew's heart needs a new connection to his lungs in order to function properly. Mayo is more than capable of performing such a complicated surgery, but his medical costs are quickly mounting. I'm hoping to fundraise $2,500 for Drew to help pay the costs of the consultations that he has already had with Mayo's cardiologists and make sure he is able to continue to seek treatment.

If you know Drew, you know that he is kind, funny, good-natured, and loving to everyone in his life. He's one of the truest friends a person could ever have and has always been supportive to everyone that needed him. Please help me in supporting Drew now when he needs it the most!
