THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!

Cannot believe we have officially raised over $10,000 for Kristopher Holland! Feeling extremely blessed, fortunate, and beyond appreciative See More

THE STORY:

On April 10, 24-year-old Kristopher "Lurch" Holland went into cardiac arrest while playing basketball. In the ambulance his heart stopped a second time, and in the days that followed, Kris was given a 6-10% chance of survival. He was on life support, placed in a medically-induced coma and given therapeutic hypothermia in an effort to preserve brain function. 

We are so, so, SO happy and grateful that those efforts worked.

The incredible medical team at Indianapolis’ Methodist Hospital, coupled with the insane amount of prayers, good vibes and support sent from people like you and Kris’ fighting, never-give-up spirit, enabled his discharge from the hospital on April 20. He is beyond thrilled to return to his mom Missy, girlfriend Maura, daughter Naomi, and the thousands of other people who love him. Kris really is our miracle.

But as you can image, the medical bills are HEFTY.

Kris was at Methodist for a total of 11 days, with 9 of those spent in intensive care. He was transported via ambulance and lifeline helicopter. Once at the hospital, he had a ventilator put in twice, a heart catheter, multiple X-rays, an MRI and genetic testing. Ultimately Kris was diagnosed with catecholaminergic polymorphic VT (CPVT) and had a defibrillator inserted to help regulate his heartbeat. Odds of the diagnosis? 1 in about 10,000.

That’s our Kris, always defying the odds! ;)

And thus, the ask: If you are able, please consider joining us in fundraising to help lighten the substantial financial burden left on Kris and his young family. Methodist Hospital and Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield project that out-of-pocket medical bills will exceed $50,000. As a 24-year-old man, these financial projections seem impossible to overcome. However, with help from the community, family and people who love him, our contributions as a whole will help make a substantial impact. Just as we have appreciated the prayers and loving support, we also appreciate any donation you're able to make.

A portion of proceeds will be donated to the Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndromes (SADS) Foundation to raise prevention and awareness for those affected by SADS conditions.

Thank you so much.
