On Monday Justin went in for major heart surgery that required a quadruple bypass. While his surgery was successful and he is recovering, he will have to live with the effects of this heart disease for the rest of his life. Now the family is faced with the stresses that come with the necessary lifestyle changes and costs of the emergency procedure.
Unfortunately at age 31 no one expects or is even prepared to pay for a major procedure such as heart surgery. Even with insurance the out of pocket expenses to them will be tremendous. Justin will be on medical leave, reducing his income for 3 months and this amazing little family will also be taking another financial hit because Justin's wife Samantha will need to take 6 weeks of leave of absence from work to help aid in his recovery. Since they just had a baby this year it is likely that leave will be unpaid as she has already taken her FMLA benefits in the last 12 months.
Anything you can do to help this amazing family would be grately appreciated. Please share with your friends and family as well. Anything goes a long way!
Thank you so much from all of us.
