Extra Equipment to Donate

Hello Everyone!

I recently became the proud owner of a new heart!  

As a result of my new gift, I have several equipment items up for grabs, if anyone is interested.  I have the following items, all for a Heartmate 3:

Extra batteries / Extra controller / Two battery clips / 8x12 tegaderm bandages / 1 ladies, black, size large, quilted vest - fits the HM3 equipment.

Please let me know if you are interested and I will ship them out to you for free!   Thank you, Darla

That is such great news! I hope you are recovering well and enjoying your new heart! I will be praying for you.
I received a heart mate 3 October of 2020. I am on the heart transplant list and hoping to be blessed with a new heart soon. I would be very grateful to receive your extra equipment and when (not if) I receive a new heart I will pay it forward and offer the extra equipment to someone else.

It would be wonderful if I could acquire the extra control unit. I’m in the zoom lvad group as well.

Hi Christopher!   

I haven't seen you on the LVAD talk group in a while.  I hope all is well!   Unfortunately, the controller is on it's way to someone else who asked about it earlier.  At this point all that I have left are 4 batteries.    Darla

    Hi Darla,

    I am a newbie Lvad recipient. I just got it last November.  4 batteries would be great. May I ask how long you had the Lvad? Thanks!

Good luck with your new heart.

All the best,

My father had a Heart mate 2 for 11 years. I now have his battery charger, pump, accessories.  Please contact if anyone is in need of extra supplies.

My husband is on his 2md LVAD, he had the Heartware from August 2017 till this past October. His first one went into failure so it was replaced with the Heartmate 3. If you have that one would love to get extra battery charger. Please contact me if this is what you have.

Thank You
