This is the Patrick Carroll Heart Transplant Fund. Money raised will be used for medical costs and other expenses not covered by insurance.

Patrick is a husband and a father of 2 great kids. He was born with Transposition of the Great Arteries. . This is a congenital heart defect in which the two major vessels that carry blood away from the heart -- the aorta and the pulmonary artery -- are switched. Patrick underwent surgery when he was younger to put in a temporary “fix.” Now that he is older, he has outgrown this “fix” and with his declining health, Patrick was listed for a heart transplant at Stanford in Dec 2010.

Patrick is currently working as an office manager, and is the family's only source of income. The doctors at Stanford University have informed Patrick that he will have to relocate to Stanford for upwards of 3 months following the transplant for recovery and rehab. Even with insurance, the family will have uninsured medically-related expenses such as: relocation and travel expenses and the costly immunosuppressant medications that Patrick will need to take for the rest of his life.

Any money donated will be used for transplant related expenses.

We appreciate your love, support and continued prayers.
