Our Story

My name is Michael Mills and my wife Lora needs a heart transplant. Lora was born with a congenital heart defect called Tricuspid Atresia. She has had a total of 5 open-heart surgeries to date to keep her original heart operational to this point. The cardiologists at Shands Hospital at the University of Florida have informed us that Lora will need a heart transplant within the next 3 to 4 years if the heart she has now lasts that long.

The Impact

The impact of completing this goal would be a tremendous blessing to our family. Lora’s lifelong dream is to conceive a child and become a Registered Nurse, but she has not been able to do these things because of her heart defect. Having a new heart would allow her to have a new life.

What We Need

In preparing for this fund with Shands Hospital we were told not to set a specific amount of money to raise. With this being said, our family has come to an agreement that any funds not used for the heart transplant will be donated to the pediatric ward of Shands Hospital. We want to be a blessing as much as you are blessing us.
