Deputy Heil is a professional law enforcement patrol deputy, proudly wearing her Eagle County Sheriff’s Office uniform daily as she proudly serves the citizens and visitors of Eagle County.  Deputy Heil also distinguishes herself by going above and beyond with her tireless dedication to the children and families of Eagle County as a School Resource Officer in our local schools providing enforcement services.

But if you asked her she would tell you that her favorite role in life is being a loving wife and mother to five beautiful children. In March Megan gave birth to baby Rowen. During her pregnancy she unfortunately developed several medical issues that caused her to be hospitalized for a couple of weeks due to blood clots on her brain and lungs. Being the very strong woman that she is she recovered and gave birth to baby Rowen. The Heil family has been so excited to have their new family addition home and even the older kid’s work together to help out with the baby.

On Sunday July 16, 2017 Megan was admitted to a hospital in Aurora, CO. due to blood clot complications affecting her brain.  She was in the hospital for a week prior to being released and able to return home with her family to Rifle, CO. On Sunday July 23, 2017 Megan was admitted to the Grand River Hospital in Rifle. They were not able to provide the medical treatment that she needed so she was flown from Grand Junction to Swedish Medical Center in Denver where there are specialist that can treat her for her condition.

Due to the amount of medical assistance that Megan has needed we are requesting any donations that can help her and her family during their time of need.

Geoff and I have been overwhelmed by the amount of caring, compassionate people on our community.

I'm happy to report that after a few more minor hiccups, we learned late last week that all of my clots have been dissolved by the prescribed medication.

I have a few more weeks of doctor ordered R&R at home before I return to work for the first day of school.

These last few weeks have been difficult for my children and my family as a whole, however we have taken great comfort in knowing that we are among such a great community of family and friends! Thank you!

In speaking with Geoff, Megan's Husband it sounds like the treatment that Megan received at Swedish Medical has helped her with some of the symptoms that she was experiencing. Great news!!! Megan was discharged and is heading home to get some much needed rest and time with her family.

She will be recovering and resting at home and will still be required to see several specialist and will have other medical expenses coming in as she is treated.

Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers and support for the Heil family! It melts my heart to see how our ECSO family, community , friends and family have come together to offer this much needed assistance.
