John's medical and living expenses

John Stapleton is a honest, hard working and very funny guy. He loves God, his family and Country. He served in the  Marines out of high school then reenlisted in the Air Force in Desert Storm. In the spring of 2016, John started feeling ongoing chest pains and constantly out of breath. He was diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. A rare congential heart defect, which likely killed his Father and brother. John had open heart surgery November1, 2016. He was looking forward to getting back to work as a letter carrier at Miamisbburg, Ohio Post Office. Just before returning to work, his incision began to open and showed signs of infection. He underwent a second surgery in Feb of 2017 to clean out all of the infection and was put on antibiotics. The infection kept coming back, and after several failed treatments he underwent a third surgery. He had his entire sternum removed. John is now home recovering. He is off work indefinitly, out of sick leave and facing overwhelming medical debt. Now being off work so long, with no return to work date set, if able to ever go back to work, will not be able to make his mortgage payments going forward. John's has great faith in God. Asking for help is difficult, but they greatly need our help. Any help is greatly appreciated.
