Mike Scott, a previously healthy 37 year old man had a massive heart attack on Sunday January 18th, 2015. He was immediately put on the transplant list for a new heart, then was removed, then placed on it again, but all indicated he would probably have to wait a while to receive one. However, the call so hoped for came in today.
Amy Alguire, who started the “Hugs for Mike and Tia” facebook group and who has been very active in her fundraising efforts in support of the Scott family posted this on facebook:
It is with tears of joy that I post this update to you all! The gift of life has arrived for Mike and he is presently on his way to Ottawa to get his new heart with Tia Scott by his side! Please continue to send positive vibes and thoughts to Mike Scott and his family as they work through the latest part of their journey. Please pray for the family whose loss has given the gift of life to Mike and for the hands of the surgeons to be steady. Mike we are all with you in thought. You got this! Xo
It is estimated the surgery will take 6 hours.
The Seeker wishes the Scotts all the best.
