Girardville Man Needs A Heart

Screen shot 2013-05-31 at 4.06.25 PM A Girardville man now has less than nine days to get a heart. Otherwise, he’ll be taken off a priority list and his surgery will be put on hold indefinitely until he does find a heart.

Three years ago, Robbie Krick was a healthy guy. He had a job, wife and house. But then, he had a heart attack and later found out he has heart failure. He was told he would need a new heart.

University of Pennsylvania hospital has since given him a L-VAD that connects to his heart to pump it electronically.

His heart isn’t all that’s hurting, but he’s not too worried about money. He just wants a heart, and has nine days to do it before he isn’t at the top of a list.

And while his friends can’t give him a heart, but they are doing their part. The Girardville Knights of Columbus are holding a hoagie sale to raise money for him. Last day to order is June 17.

And since his co-pays are quickly adding up, his friends also started a fund in his name.
