Benefit for teen needing heart transplant

SALLIS, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A gospel program will be held to benefit a young man who needs a heart transplant.

Jakele Snow of Sallis was a star basketball athlete, when just two months ago he began developing a cold and other symptoms.

He went to the emergency room and was diagnosed with idiopathic congestive heart failure.

He is currently hospitalized at UMC and is on the heart transplant list.

His family is in need of lots of assistance at this time. So to help raise funds, a gospel benefit will be held Saturday at New Centeridge Church in Sallis at 5pm.

Call 662-582-4415 for more information. 

An account has been established in Jakele's name at Regions Bank for donations.
