 RIO RANCHO, NM
Jose Valdez, a husband and father of 4, had a massive heart attack due to a 100% blockage of the left anterior descending (LAD) artery. The massive heart attack happened Monday night (1/23/2017) without warning and only through the quick thinking and actions of his younger brother, Jose has not left us.

Jose is a dedicated father and husband never waivering in his commitment to his family. He works tirelessly and countless hours as the primary provider for his family.

This page is being started to raise money for his family's medical expenses and his long road to recovery.

Jose has given me the shirt off his back, literally! There is not a single time that Jose has not been there for us all. Help us in giving back to him in his time of need.

I would ask each of you to please get the word out about this site so that we may continue to support the Valdez family as Jose has supported many of through the years.
