I Support Zep With All My Heart

Everyone's heart at Spinal Elements is filled with love for Zep Clark who underwent open-heart surgery and vascular surgery due to aortic dissesction.  Zep's first surgery took four hours and the doctors gave his family a 50% survival rate.  Being the fighter that Zep is, he perservered the first surgery however the doctors quickly advised that he must undergo another surgery to maintain blood flow in his leg.  His aorata was split all the way from his heart to his foot and there was fear of severe complications in his leg. 

As of Tuesday afternoon Zep remains in ICU, the breathing tube has just been removed and he is undergoing observation.   Complications, if any, are unknown at this time.  There is no doubt to those of us that know Zep that he will give this recovery his all and we are praying that he will be back to his cool, friendly, loving self in no time. 

Zep is a leader who is always willing to help others.  It is our turn to help Zep and his family.  Help me lead by donating to this campaign.  His wife Gina Gareau-Clark is the  beneficiary of the campaign and will use funds for medical bills and family support during this time.  We all greatly appreciate the love and support!
