Fundraiser for Detrick Higgins

Greetings everyone!  This GoFundMe is for Detrick Higgins.  Everyone that knows Detrick knows that he is truly a fun-loving individual that loves life, family and friends.  His family and friends would like to return the love to Detrick during a time when he needs it most.   During the summer of 2008, Detrick was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. Since his diagnoses, his heart has gotten weaker over the years and he was placed on the heart transplant list.   A little over two weeks ago, Detrick received a call from University of Birmingham Hospital (UAB) that a heart was available that may be a match for him.   Praise God!!!   The heart was a perfect match for Detrick!!  

Although Detrick's heart transplant surgery was a great success, he has to remain within 50 miles of UAB Hospital for at least 6 weeks in an apartment as he recuperates.  The doctors like to keep their patients close after the surgery to adjust any meds and run tests.   Throughout this process, Detrick has remained optimistic, resilient and grateful for a second chance.   While he focuses on recovering and getting back to a normal life, we have created this campaign to show Detrick how much he is loved and supported.   All proceeds will go directly to Mr. & Mrs. Detrick Higgin’s account.
