Please Help This Baby Get a Heart Transplant

My friend Brittany gave birth to her baby, Emery, a few weeks ago. Emery is a little over six weeks old now and is desperate need of a heart transplant. She has Left Ventricular Cardio Vascular Hypertrophy and without a transplant she will not survive. Emery is on medications and will be undergoing procedures to help prolong her life until she can receive a transplant. The expenses of Emery’s hospital bills, the traveling and all other expenses incurred are greatly mounting and this family is already under a great amount of stress. Please help them to ease this financial burden so they can solely concentrate on Emery’s well being. Here is a link to their GoFundMe page. If you cannot afford to donate, please help by sharing this, it could save a baby’s life.
