Dear Friends, Family, and Community,
You might have heard that over the weekend of November 9, 2019, Eric Bennett was taken by ambulance to Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia. He was told that he was in kidney failure and would need urgent care at a higher level. Eric is currently in Jefferson’s ICU. The doctors have started dialysis and are talking about kidney transplant in the future. They also told Eric his heart isn’t functioning properly because of undiagnosed high blood pressure. Eric and his girlfriend Tovah have a 4 month old daughter Layla Reese. Eric was working full time up until last week, although he was very sick. He has been told by the nephrologists at Jefferson that the kidney donor list is 2-5 years and he would have to be on dialysis during that time. Eric won’t be able to work during this time and this will be a huge life change for Eric and his family. Eric is only 19 years old and the doctors are trying to figure out what has caused his kidneys to fail.
While Eric has insurance, it won’t cover all of his bills. We are praying that Eric will be healed and he won’t need the transplant and that God will do a miracle for Eric.
Eric was a football player and wrestler at Milford High School in Milford, Delaware and attended school in Milford his whole life. He had planned to go into the Air Force or the Army, but since that won’t be an option anymore, he wants to be an emergency room nurse. He knows one day he will help people like he has been helped over these last few days.
