HENDERSON, TX (KLTV) - Four-month-old, Brynn Lewis, needs a heart transplant to live. She was born in East Texas November 12, 2009. Right after her birth, doctors explained to her parents, Scott and Amy Lewis, that she had a serious heart defect. Brynn has spent every minute of her life in the hospital. Family and friends know Scott, Amy and big brother Brady are doing the best they can to handle the situation on their own but money is extremely tight and Brynn's treatment is expected to cost millions of dollars. Not only that, Brynn is in a Dallas hospital so the family is having to shoulder that cost, too, and mom had to quit her job so someone could be in Dallas with Brynn. Click on the video to the right to see why folks in Henderson want you to participate in a big fundraiser this Saturday to help the family.
