In an effort to raise the appropriate funds for Lora Mills’ heart transplant we have now hit Phase 2 at http://www.indiegogo.com/loramillsheartphase2.
PHASE 1 WRAP-UP
Lora and I had so many people step up and help during the 1st phase of Lora’s heart transplant that it really touched our hearts immensely! Family, friends, and strangers-turned-friends all came to the plate and hit home runs to help us. Now that Phase 2 has kicked off today, we are excited to see who will step up for our family this go-around. We are calling our family and friends to step up even more in what should be the final fundraising efforts for Lora’s fund. Please continue to share Lora’s story as it will help to save her life.
My name is Michael Mills and my wife Lora needs a heart transplant. Lora was born with a congenital heart defect called Tricuspid Atresia. She has had a total of 5 open-heart surgeries to date to keep her original heart operational to this point. The cardiologists at Shands Hospital at the University of Florida have informed us that Lora will need a heart transplant within the next 3 to 4 years if the heart she has now lasts that long.
The impact of completing this goal would be a tremendous blessing to our family. Lora’s lifelong dream is to conceive a child and become a Registered Nurse, but she has not been able to do these things because of her heart defect. Having a new heart would allow her to have a new life.
A total of $25,000 is our goal. Phase 1 of our IndieGoGo campaign raised a little over $12,000. So our goal for Phase 2 is $15,000. With this being said, our family has come to an agreement that any funds not used for the heart transplant will be donated to the pediatric ward of Shands Hospital. We want to be a blessing as much as you are blessing us.
Sharing this page and cause with as many people as possible would help us absolutely reach our goal. Please use the sharing capabilities of this site to spread the word about Lora’s fund. We thank you in advance for your giving and prayers.

(Philadelphia, PA) Today we are pleased to release the new music video by God’s Servant called, “Worthy Is The Lamb”, from his upcoming release Simple Love.

I love the Lord, for he heard my voice;
he heard my cry for mercy.
Because he turned his ear to me,
I will call on him as long as I live.
(Read the passage…)
What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died —more than that, who was raised to life —is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written:
“For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” -Psalm 44:22
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[k] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
j.Romans 8:36 Psalm 44:22
k.Romans 8:38 Or nor heavenly rulers
