Joseph Olmstead's Heart Surgery

Our friend and co-worker Joe Olmstead, pictured above with his beautiful wife Stephanie and his three wonderful Daughters, was admitted to the ER on 8/8 after feeling ill. The doctors soon discovered that two of the arteries in his heart were 100% blocked, and a third is almost 90% congested. In addition, he has been diagnosed with diabetes and will have to have five valves in his heart replaced. He is 32 years old and was physically active before this sudden tragedy.


Joe is a parent of three beautiful daughters, Arianna, who is 8 years old and enjoys gymnastics as well as drawing. Annalexis who is 5 years old and likes putting on fashion shows for her father and swimming, as well as Maddison, who is about turn 4 on the 20th of August  and loves to play doctor with her dad and sisters. Joe has been with his soul-mate Stephanie for 8 years and hopes to spend many more with her.

With Joe in the hospital, his family is struggling to pay for basic necessities such as groceries, rent, electric and gas. Joe is scared both for his life and for the well being of his loving family. Every dollar you donate will be given to them to help pay for essentials while Joe is out of work and recovers.
