At age 8 Chad wanted to be a police officer. He joined the police force immediately after high school, went to the Police Academy , and for the next 17 years he lived his dream. Early in his career he worked part-time jobs so he could afford to be a full-time Police Officer., and from Officer of the Year to Detective of the Year, he loved his job. Unfortunately, in March 2018 Chad had to have a defibrillator/pacemaker implanted, and his "protecting the public" career as a Lieutenant/Watch Commander was over. A Cardiac Biopsy was also performed in September.
Chad is now a commission only Sales Representative for a Car Dealership in South Georgia and has already been out of work for a month due to the medical procedures, and the expenses are already growing . And when he has the transplant he will be out of work for about 6 months. Chad will have deductibles, co-pays, co-insurance, travel back and forth to Emory Hospital in Atlanta, meals and lodging for his family to be with him, not to mention no income for months. He has to start financially preparing now.
My son has spent his entire adult life serving and helping those in need, keeping them safe and putting his life on the line every day. Chad is a very proud man and would never ask anyone for anything, so I am asking for him and his family.
