John needs a new heart! ❤️

John came to America when he was 8 years old and adopted by two wonderful parents that loved and cared for him dearly. As a youth, he was involved in cub scouts, boy scouts, explorers group learning life skills and mentoring others. He played and excelled in baseball and football from grade school to high school. He was very active in his church growing up serving as Altar Boy serving the priest and the The Lord.
As an adult, he has worked for several companies involved in computers and telephone, always supporting his co-workers. He has amazing work ethics and loves to help.
He married in 1977 and remains married to his lovely wife, Sharon, with whom he had two loving sons. He has always taken great care of his family, even at his own personal sacrifice. He brought his sons up in the church, and always accepted everyone for who they are and what they do. His home was open to anyone in need, and throughout the years he has helped several back to their feet.
John loves to contribute. He volunteers at several charity events and at the church he and Sharon have been a part of. He was a cofounder and operated as the Operations Director for the McKinney Believe Race for 5+ years and volunteered at every major St. Andrews event for the last 10yrs.
In 2014 John was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation requiring him to have a pacemaker/defibrillator placed. Luckily that has not required use, however his heart has continued to fail and required several hospitalization and piling bills. During this illness, John has lost his job and required him to go on medical disability cutting his income in half. Now he is in the journey of, and making great progress on, the weight loss required to be presented to the heart transplant committee for approval, which will increase medical debt even more.
We are starting this go fund me page to assist them with medical expenses and the impending heart transplant if approved. If at the end of his journey there are funds left they will be given to other charities such as, The American Heart Association, Holy Family School which will help children with their tuition and St.Andrews Episcopal Church.
Thank you for your consideration and help.
