Milestones: Special Request, Bryan Perrin
#1 on Mayo’s heart transplant list — Bryan Perrin!
After much prayer and six major surgeries, Bryan came from Kentucky to Minnesota six months ago to await a heart transplant at the Mayo Clinic. Because of Bryan’s rare blood type, doctors predicted that it would be months before he received a match. He is still waiting, and it’s been very difficult.
The family is again having to make some major life changes. Bryan is moving into Rochester’s “transplant house” with others who await transplants. Between medical expenses for Bryan, several family medical emergencies, home expenses back in Kentucky and living expenses in Rochester, the financial situation is overwhelming.
This journey has left them with not enough money to pay bills, with their only income being Bryan’s minimal social security disability check.
The Rochester Church of Christ asks you and your church family to pray for the Perrins and help them financially. Please send tax-deductible gifts to the Rochester Church of Christ (note “A gift for the Perrins” on checks). Otherwise, write checks to “Perrin Family Benefit Fund.” One hundred percent of your gift will go to the Perrins!
The Perrins are very grateful to those of you who have so graciously helped the last six months. Weekly updates have been shared at gigattaattgig.blogspot.com.
Please pray! Cards and notes of encouragement are welcome! Give what you can: $5? $10? $20? $50? $100? $250? $500? $1,000? Mail gifts, cards and notes to: Rochester Church of Christ, Attn: Perrin Family Benefit, 632 2nd St SW, Rochester, MN 55902-2931.
