Chris Richel heart transplant

My brother, Chris Richel was diagnosed at age 31 with congestive heart failure. He is now 46 yo and has a left ventricular assistive device (LVAD) to help pump blood through his body. He lives with our parents who are helping him financially with the cost of multiple hospitalizations and expensive medications and treatments. He and my mom will need to live in San Diego for at least 6 wks after transplant which will be another financial burden.

Friends and family will ask what they can do to help? This is something that any little bit can help. Thank you keeping my family in your thoughts and prayers.
