Please help Laura and her family pay for the high costs of saving her life so that her 3 children can have a healthy Mommy.

Laura was diagnosed with Cardio Myopathy 20 years ago. She had a long viral illness which did damage to her heart. It was only pumping at half the strength it should have then and over the years worked itself down to 10%
At the time we were told that she would never finish school (she was studying Nursing), she should never marry and she should never have children. She entered a medication study which saved her life then.
She did finish school, she became a Family Nurse Practitioner. She also married and with the guidance of both her GYN and her Cardiologist she had 1st a set of boy girl twins and then a beautiful baby girl.
The twins are now 10 and the youngest is 8. They are waiting along with Laura's loving family and friends for her to receive a new heart.
During this time of waiting we almost lost her but some very smart Doctors at UPMC saved her by giving her surgery to add an assist pump to her heart so that she would be okay to find a new heart.
She is in a rented house now in Pittsburgh waiting very patiently for the call to come from the hospital to say they have a heart for her. We need your help the bills are piling up faster than we imagined.
