SALT LAKE CITY - May 9, 2014 - PRLog -- Cottonwood Heights, UT – Austin Hulse is a teen who wants to live, but he needs a mobility vehicle to get to his weekly doctor visits and many hospital trips. He needs votes in a national contest and if he gets enough he could win the vehicle that will make life so much easier for him.

He has personally written the sad details of the more than 100 operations he’s had in his short life, and posted it on the site where the public can vote for him to win a mobility vehicle. Voting takes only one minute of time, and there is no cost involved. Voting ends at midnight May 9th.

Austin needs a new heart. Getting a transplant is not easy, and the current challenge is getting the transplant approved by his insurance company. That process is underway, according to Tyra Vance, his mother.

“I have had 107 surgeries to correct many physical issues that my body just could not fight on its own,” said Austin. In addition to various heart surgeries, he’s had a pacemaker, and many repairs to previous surgeries because his defective heart is just not holding out.

“Although I can eat, I am not able to eat enough to live on so, in 2005 a feeding tube was surgically placed to be sure I am able to receive adequate nutrition. In 2005 I was hit by a car causing even more physical issues and more surgeries. Oxygen is a necessity 24/7. Chronic pain is something I have had all my life. Massage therapy helps but does not make the pain go away. It only helps with the pain intensity,” he explained.

Austin would love to one day be an actor in a feature film, and so the Utah acting community has come to his aid and are helping by mailing cards to him, and making donations large and small to help with the enormous expenses. The general public are being asked to join in.

Send cards and any size donation to Austin Hulse, P.O. Box 711001, Salt Lake City, UT 84171-1001. He also has a Facebook page and wants more “likes” so like his page at and has a wish list of things he would like to do under the About section of the page.
