Help Steve Get through a Heart Transplant

Steven Knapp is waiting for a heart transplant - he is 35, he and Chelsea have 2 small children (Riley & Lucas) and Steve will be in the hospital for the next 12 months (at a minimum). He lost his heart on Easter Sunday due to a congenital defect's catastrophic failure. He is on an artificial heart now and listed #2 nationally on the  organ donor wait list.  You can send cards to Steven Knapp, c/o The Mount Sinai Hospital, 1468 Madison Ave, New York, NY 10029. 

His family lives in the Albany area and we are collecting funds to help cover train tickets, food and daycare (basic living expenses) since Chelsea has to take time off of work to travel to NYC and Steve is obviously not working for the next 12 months through transplant and recovery. Any donation is greatly appreciated.  If everyone that reads this can donate $5 it would go a long way to helping Steve & Chelsea get through the next 12-18 months. If you cannot donate, please send prayers and share this post to help spread the word.

Funds will be used as they come in to provide for Steve's family (groceries, diapers, utility bills and travel expenses). Chelsea has to take the train to NYC to visit Steve every week, she cannot afford to stay in NYC overnight, so she spends her 1 day off a week riding the train down and back to see him while her dad takes care of their kids.

Your support means the world to Steve and his family. I am Steven's Aunt Darcy, and I am setting up this fundraiser to help Steve & Chelsea make ends meet until he can get through his surgeries and come home next year. If you are not an organ donor, please sign up, when you have a loved one in need, you will be glad that a stranger donated organs to save lives.
