Eric Swendsen's Hospital Expenses

Eric Swendsen passed away on October 2nd from a massive heart attack that he sustained on September 30th. He leaves behind a wife of 7 years and two little boys, Cooper who is 3 and Elijah who is 1. Eric just turned 30 years old on August 11th.

Eric was working out at Hermann Park with his dad, Bill, when he collapsed out of no where. Turns Eric was suffering from a massive heart attack. Over the course of the next two days, it became evident that Eric sustained too much damage to his brain which caused a brain hemorrhage on Monday morning. At that point, the Eric we knew was gone.

Eric was a big guy but he also touched a lot of peoples hearts with his big smile, big heart, and big laugh. Eric was a wonderful husband, dad, friend, and son. I don’t know if he ever realized how much he was loved. I do know that with everything Eric has done in his life good or bad, Eric did good by his boys. He loved Cooper and Eli with every bit of his heart.

Through all of the devastation that we have gone through lately there are still bills coming in. Eric was hooked up to every machine in the books plus he had heart surgery when he got to the hospital to remove the clot so the bills Jessica is about to receive are going to be shocking. Then there is the Funeral.

So I am asking everyone whether you know Jessica, Eric, Bill, Keith, or I please donate anything you can to alleviate any stress from Jessica that you can. She has enough on her plate dealing with being a widow at 30 years old and raising two little boys without their wonderful daddy.
