5-Year-Old Ari “Danger” Schultz Receives New Heart
GoFundMe started by family friend to help offset medical costs
Redwood City, California | March 15, 2017 — At 11:32 p.m. on Friday, March 3, 5-year-old Ari “Danger” Schultz received a new heart at Boston Children’s Hospital after waiting over 200 days for a donor. A week later, a family friend in California created a GoFundMe to offset the mounting medical costs the Schultz family has incurred. To date, Ari's New Heart Medical Fund has raised nearly $20,000.
“The Schultz's were our guides when we first learned that our son's heart had a defect,” wrote campaign organizer Danny Rosenberg. “They have been pillars of support ever since and we wanted to pay it forward for such amazing and selfless people by launching this campaign.”
