Bryan Indergrund is a 26-year-old Verona native who is waiting and hoping for a heart transplant. On Thursday, May 5, there will be a benefit for him at O’Neil’s from 3 to 7 p.m. to raise money for travel and medical expenses associated with the transplant. There is also a need for O negative blood donors.

Indergrund, whose dad works for in the maintenance department of the Verona Board of Education, was diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy while still in college. He had been coping with the disease, which has claimed the lives of two young Verona men in recent years, until this past spring, when doctors informed him that he needed a heart transplant because his own was weakening. Indergrund has been chronicling the ups and downs of his life since then on his blog, “The 26 Year Old Tin Man“. (You can also follow him on Facebook.)

Tickets to the O’Neil’s benefit are $30 per person, which includes beer, wine, soda and appetizers. They can be purchased at the door, or in advance from Chuck Molinaro (973-202-4842), Paul McDevitt (201-247-1707), Len Waterman or George Zehnder. If you cannot attend but would like to make a donation, e-mail [email protected] for information.

Indergrund also has two direct donation blood tags available to anyone who is O negative. If you can donate blood for his operation, e-mail e-mail him.
