My good friend George Wallace has cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure. To have such a fate put upon someone, at such a young age, is so utterly devastating to his family, friends and loved-ones it’s beyond comprehension. George is only 48- years old.
George’s disease has progressed to the point that he is now unable to complete normal day-to-day tasks without 24-hour care from others. He currently has the use of only 35% of his heart pumping to keep him alive.
George is currently on the heart transplant list. But that could take time – time, which George doesn’t have. George’s other option is Stem Cell Therapy, which has proven to be successful for many others who so desperately want to live. This procedure uses George’s own stem cells to heal his heart and bring it back to near normal function. The only catch is that his insurance company won’t pay for the procedure.
It’s sad when we let corporations determine if someone should live or die because without this procedure – George’s chances of living are very slim. It costs $70,000. George needs $35,000 by January 10th and another $35,000 by January 20th.
Because so many friends and family have been asking about donating to George’s cause, I decided to set up this site as a good way to organize fundraising efforts. If the tables were turned, many of you know George would do the same for you, in a heartbeat (no pun intended).
Please donate what you can to help George live.
A sincere thank you from the loved ones of George Wallace
