We are uniting to raise money to help Lloyd fight his battle with Viral Cardiomyopathy. Your donations and support are appreciated.

Welcome to Huggy Bearz Heart Transplant Fundraiser!
The funds raised will be used to pay for medical costs and other expenses related to his illness not covered by insurance.

Lloyd has been fighting Viral Cardiomyopathy since January 2009. Since that time, he has been placed on numerous medications, received a pacemaker/ICD and battles daily other illnesses brought on as a direct result of the cardiomyopathy such as diabetes,hypertension and pulmonary hypertension. As of July of this year, Lloyd entered Stage 3 heart failure. As many of you may know, there is no cure for this disease. Lloyd's best chance at survival will be surgery to implant an LVAD heart pump, which will enable him to stay alive until a heart comes available for a heart transplant.

The costs associated with Lloyd's illness are rising daily and are reaching amounts that are almost insurmountable. He is no longer able to work and even basic daily tasks such as taking a walk for a couple of blocks can cause him to be severely ill for several days. Despite all that he faces with many upcoming hospitalizations and the uncertainty of his survival,Lloyd manages to keep his spirits up and his sense of humor with him.
We thank you for your donations, support and most importantly your prayers. We are grateful for each day we have with him and we are all praying to keep him with us for as long as God will allow.
His wife,Toni Milburn, his sons, Eric and Kevin and the entire Team Huggy Bearz Heartz
