Help Daynon's New Heart

Starting with just a cough...? Something so simple turned  into something so tragic! A hospital visit ... Then a helicopter in Arkansas.  Unexpected  surgery after surgery, yet each one saving his life!  Daynon is 14 years old  and has had 3 surgeries within a week.  His last surgery was a heart transplant.  After being on the transplant list for 5 days he miraculously received a heart and is doing much better.
Daynon has 2  siblings back home in Lafayette , La. His family is stretched living in 2 different states.  Daynon isn't in the clear yet and his family needs help.  Who can live without a heart?  So how big is yours?  Please help out the Melancon family in this desperate time in need.  Whatever God lays on your heart will be appreciated in every way.

A special thanks to all who have helped this far. But just when you think you see a glimpse of light where things begin to get better, another crash happens. Amy, Daynon's mom, has now been hospitalized at a totally different hospital. They believe she has pancreatitis and is having a surgery tomorrow. This family has been through a huge tunnel of turmoil this year. Starting with Eric, Daynon's Dad, in February. He had a severe heart issue that threw him in a couma. Next Daynon, than this week is Amy. Any help and support right now will be appreciated. Eric is needed at the hospital more now than ever. So it is impossible for him to get back to work. Please dig deep in your heart to support this family in this time of need. I pray that GOD blesses each one who helps this family as they got through this devastating time.
