CT Fletcher Heart Transplant

He’s had your back for years – now it’s time to have his. Read the story and see how you can help CT (both financially and emotionally) below.

CT Fletcher is a legendary inspiration to millions of young men and women looking to find their ways in the gym, at home, and in life in general.

He’s motivated us to push ourselves to the limit in the gym and on the field. He’s inspired young men to repair their relationships with their fathers. And he’s challenged us to be our very best selves in the wake of all forms of adversity. He’s influenced us and loved us through a camera lens without even ever knowing us.

And now CT needs us to send some of that love back in his direction.

Below you can learn the history and how you can help:

CT Fletcher’s Heart Failure Backstory

Heart failure has always run in CT’s family. As explained on his website’s about page, he lost his mother to congestive heart failure in 2004 after many years of suffering, and that came after being told about his own dangerous blood pressure problem.

A year later in 2005, he had open heart surgery in 2005, where he flat-lined three times before the doctors revived him.

He slowly came back to strength, and during that time, YouTube began to take off, and with it so did CT’s international celebrity, thanks to the motiviational videos recorded by his friends in the Iron Addicts Gym.

CT’s 2017 Heart Attack

Unfortunately, CT’s heart began to catch up with him once again. He suffered a heart attack on June 15, 2017, and Tweeted about it a couple weeks later:

The need for a heart transplant

Even worse, doctors soon told him that his heart is now only functioning at a quarter of its capacity, and that he’d need a heart transplant. His feelings are here:

At this point, CT created a Patreon campaign to assist with the financials and squeeze out one last bit of motivation. CT doesn’t exactly love this, but since he can no longer travel the world to train with us and motivate us at shows, this is what he’s gotta do.

He gets into this in the video below:

CT discusses his health situation with Joe Rogan

This is an all-around fantastic Podcast (even on Joe Rogan’s standards), but the heart transplant discussion starts around he 1:05:52 mark:

Things have been a bit quiet, but as you may know, failing hearts typically worsen in condition, and time has been quickly passing since July 2017.

Sadly, in order to get a heart, someone nearby with a compatible heart must die, and the heart transplant list is typically sorted in order of need. This means that people have to get extremely sick before they’re at the top of the list – a time-dragging experience so scary it can’t be put into words.

CT’s Last Will and Testament

This weekend, CT published a video titled LAST WILL & TESTAMENT:

Mark Bell makes the call to action
