A 10-year-old boy in Hopewell, Mercer County, needs a new heart and his family needs your help, according to Mercer Me.

Robert Loftin has been diagnosed with advanced heart failure and his parents, Andrea and Michael, obviously want the very best care for their son, but that takes money and a lot of it. They need help. I can't even begin to imagine if I were in their shoes. If everyone gives a little, it would be a lot for this hopeful family.

There's been a bake sale in their community, a book sale is being organized right now by friends for October 26th at the historic train station in Hopewell Borough (for the details, click here), a Go Fund Me has been set up by his aunt, and We Care Sports at Schafer Sports Center dubbed their annual Kids Can Tri triathlon "Run for Robert" this year and donated some of their proceeds to the family.
