@estrada53 Hello Ellen, just a response to this thread and your current research. I am mother and caregiver to my son, Brendan, who is coming up on his 1 year heartiversary on April 1st. He received a high risk heart, from a young man under the age of 18, that is all we know about his generous donor at this point. Prior to his up-listing onto the transplant list in February of 2020, Brendan was on an LVAD for 3 years as status 7, starting to experience clotting issues. The heart team at Mayo Phoenix spoke to us about considering a high risk heart, and we agreed that it would open up the opportunities. It was a month and half later that they called with a possible donor who ended up being viable for transplant. I will approach Brendan and show him the recruitment flyer regarding your study. Are the email and phone numbers on the flyer your preferred way to contact? Best regards, Brenda White
