My brother Joe survived 5 years with a heart transplant and continues to raise his two daughters on his own. He dropped down to his normal weight, studied and graduated as a Holistic Health Practitioner. All was going great.
And then it happened. His body started rejecting his heart, throwing him into near death congestive heart failure and another trip to The Cleveland Clinic, and another long recovery. After months of experimental and traditional treatments, he is almost out of danger. But he has a long road to recovery.
His family needs all the love, prayers, hope, and support they can get. Joe and his girls need financial assistance to meet their continued medical and living expenses until he is cleared to re-enter the workforce.
His eldest daughter, his siblings, and a few charities are helping all they can, and Joe lives a humble, frugal lifestyle.
Joe believes in giving back. Since his transplant five years ago, he has enthusiastically volunteered as an ambassador for three organizations: Donate Life, Ohio Medicaids’ Caresource Insurance, and The Mid-Ohio Food Banks. Joe also has testified before the Ohio House Finance Committee to advocate funding for the safety nets which fund these organizations.
Anything you can give to help support this loving, humble, wise, and healthy-minded soul, will be greatly appreciated.
Here is a link to Joe’s story:
I encourage you to read it even if you don’t give, because donating organs is like giving someone a new life. It did for Joe, and now, with all our help, he can continue being the great dad and work to pay it forward as a healthcare practitioner.
Joe is a great father, friend, brother, and an inspiration.
