Hoefling Family Medical Emergency

UPDATE: On 3/30/19 Tim transitioned into hospice care. The family is very grateful for all of your financial support and prayers.  The current donated funds, and future donations will be used as needed for expenses.
Tim and Jean Hoefling are well-loved residents of Louisville, CO. They are faithful Christians who served many years as missionaries and have been active members in their church community. Tim has always been a hardworking family man who has hardly known a day of ill health. Recently, he began to feel low on energy and unable to recover from what he thought was the flu. However, a few days ago he was admitted to the hospital because it was discovered that he has suffered two undiagnosed heart attacks, has a blood clot near his heart, and a systemic infection that cannot be identified. As of 3/25/19 he was air lifted to Anschutz where they have determined the best course of action is a heart transplant. The Hoeflings only have a health insurance co-op plan. The doctors will not move forward with the transplant until they are sure the money will be available to pay for it. They are looking at about $800,000. This, of course, does not include all the other medical bills and their regular monthly expenses while Tim is unable to work. This need is extremely time sensitive since the medical team is working to keep him alive until the money can be secured. Please consider giving if you can. No donation is too small and no amount of prayer is too much. UPDATE: While the situation remains urgent, and the heart transplant is currently not an option, there have been many answers to prayer. Tim's blood pressure and heart rate have stabilized and he is able to have short visits with friends and family. Many, many thanks to everyone who has been praying. Your prayers are being heard!
