NFT Patient Wants New Heart for Valentine's Day

February 16, 2009

Read this article from the Tulsa World newspaper about a young mother, NFT patient Meagan Shelby, who needs a lifesaving heart transplant.

NFT works with Meagan, and patients like her, to raise money for transplant-related needs. In Meagan's case, a heart transplant costs approximately $650,000--and that's only the beginning! Even with health insurance, transplant patients require daily anti-rejection medications that can cost as much as $5,000 each month! NFT hopes to alleviate the financial burden so transplant patients can focus on their healing and recovery.
