Support for Chad Oliver and Family

This Go Fund me is to help support Chad Oliver, a friend and dear co-worker of ours. Chad is a husband and a father of 3 beautiful kids that all need him.  Chad is an operator and first responder. As a paramedic for 8 years he has saved counltess lives. On December 2nd the tables turned when Chads heart stopped unexpectantly during his sons football game. Thank God for the wonderful people there that took quick action and saved him. Chad was admitted to the hospital and recieved a defibrillator, which is not working. After getting discharged and receiving a second opinion, Chad will need surgery again In January to fix what the first doctors didn't quite get right. He has a long road ahead of him and a lot of unanswered questions on why this happened and whats to come. I can't imagine what kind of stress he is going through but we in the Oil Field stand together, and now is the time to rally for Chad and his family. Chad has been through so much in the past week and all we can do is pray and help him and his family out in this time of need. He will be out for awhile and anything we can raise for him will help ease the burden. We are hoping to help with living expenses for the next 2 months and a little for Christmas. *Updated* With the holidays, current and future medical expenses and time he and his wife has missed, he could use all the financial help he can get. From Chad:                                                "December 2nd my heart suddenly stopped on the side line while coaching my son’s football game. I am so grateful and appreciative that my football coaches and parents immediately started CPR. They got an AED that shocked my heart and brought me back to life. Thank you God.. I was taken and treated at Kingwood Medical Center. Unfortunately, all the doctors involved in my case couldn’t figure out why my heart suddenly stopped. "
