In honor of our little friend Delaney receiving her heart transplant we are planting trees with heart shaped leaves (Eastern Redbud) to those who donate above a set minimum to her cause and are interested. Taylor’s Nursery in Raleigh has teamed up with the arborists here at Arbormax to help Delaney reach her much needed fundraising goal for medical expenses.
Miss Delaney is a precious 1 year old little angel that has been in Duke Children’s hospital since early November waiting on a heart transplant. Nothing Makes us happier than being able to say that she received her new heart February 5th and is doing amazing.
The uncovered medical costs associated with the lengthy stay and the transplant are overwhelming and exceed what a normal family could pay in ten years. The Children’s Organ Transplant Association also known as COTA is a non profit organization that helps families fundraise for these tremendous expenses. Delaney has a fundraising page set up through COTA and can be viewed at www.delaneysarmy.com
The Eastern Red bud tree is a magnificent specimen that has beautiful Magenta pink flowers that bloom spring to summer. The tree grows approximately 20-30 feet tall and has a canopy that spreads approximately 25 feet in width. The leaves are a heart shaped leaf.
Each tree will be delivered and installed at no cost. The tree will be approximately 6 feet tall and 2 inches in diameter at the base. All donations are to be made through COTA and are 100% tax deductible.
The typical cost for this tree and the planting service is $180.00. Any donation over $100 will be eligible to receive a tree. If you would like a tree installed please send us an email with your name and the donation amount.
We have 3 large Red Bud trees available that are approximately 15 ft tall and 4 inches in diameter. These usually retail around $450 installed. If you would like to make a donation above $250 you will receive one.
If you are in The Raleigh-Durham area and are interested in receiving a tree please call Tim 919-247-1985 or email us firstname.lastname@example.org to check availability. Please keep in mind that Delaney needs donations of all sizes. No amount is to small.
