Unfortunately on April 19th John suffered from a severe heart attack. Thankfully John’s niece Sophia Nocerino was with him and noticed that the symptoms and chest pains he was experiencing was very serious. Sophia immediately got him into the car and rushed him into emergency care as fast as she could. Along the way she had called 911 due to the pain and symptoms increasing so quickly. An ambulance met them on the side of the road and took John, rushing him to the emergency room and preparing the doctors for his arrival. She saved his life, if we waited any longer he would not of made it. They revived him several times, now John is slowly recovering and has a long road ahead of him. After having a major surgery, we found out John had a heart attack due to having a 98% blockage in his left artery. After a following doctors visit we were told that he has another 100% blockage in his right artery which may lead to another possible surgery in the near future. So far John has had an amazing recovery from his first surgery and our family is holding our heads high that things continue to go in a positive direction. Although John has been surrounded and cared for by his loving family, we never prepared for this and never saw it coming. Any donation would help the cost of his surgeries and medical bills. John and our family greatly appreciate it
