Heart Surgery for Eric Botonis

A few years ago, a dear family friend and co-worker, Eric Botonis, was diagnosed with heart failure. While needing open heart surgery as soon as possible, complexities in actually scheduling the surgery as well as overcoming his fears became harder to do... Sept 21st, 2020 UPDATE: He finally had open heart surgery today!

A silver lining in the delay is that today he had his long awaited surgery and it went very well!

For those that have been asking about how they can help, your prayers for a successful surgery and strength for his family are greatly appreciated.

Eric will be laid up for approx 3-4 mos at home to heal. He is the sole bread winner for his family. We are kindly asking for monetary donations to help him stay home to heal. May it be small or large donation, please give what you can to help! His family and friend s appreciate your kindness!

This GoFundMe page has also been established for those interested in directly assisting with what will be a mountain of medical and related living expenses to his surgery that has also sidelined him from his work as a mechanic. 

Thank you and God Bless,

Shannon Ganotice
