Jim’s health struggles began in June when he was diagnosed with a sudden and severe case of myocarditis that has left him in need of a heart transplant.  Jim became the first person in the United States to undergo an experimental procedure where two small pumps were implanted in his heart.  The pumps have allowed him to go home and be with his family while he gets strong enough for his transplant.

Leave it to Jim to make history!
