He does need a transplant and they need to talk to him (Darren) about the outer box before they will put it in. Basically it's a pump in his heart that will feed the blood from the left side up to the main aterery and back into the blood stream and the box will be a battery pack on the outside of his body that he will have to carry around with him until he gets his transplant. They have transferred him to University of Penn.
We are asking for any donations to help cover the medical bills and household bills.
I just want to thank everyone that has donated and the people that are going to donate. I know this will mean a lot to Dawn and Darren. It has been a hard week for Dawn and the two families. Darren is a strong guy, and I know he will pull through. It is just going to take time, so PLEASE keep him in your hearts.
