Jeff's Big Heart
My husband was newly diagnosed on 7/8/18, has an LVAD placed in 7/23/18, and is now awaiting transplant. Here’s the link to my husband’s GoFundMe page:
Please take a moment to read the incredible story of a person that puts everyone infront of himself, now finds himself in a position that puts him and his family in need a little help.
This 4th of July was spent like any other, we were fortunate to have the experience of camping and enjoying festivities with good friends. Jeff was late meeting us at the campground because, as a good Samaritan and ICU nurse, he stopped to help an elderly woman he spotted lying in her driveway; seemingly experiencing a medical emergency. He directed her husband to call 911, helped her take her rescue medications, and stayed with her until EMS arrived so he could issue the responders a full report of his care. He then continued on his way to meet us at the Campground- but if you know Jeff, that’s just his character; always extending himself to help others whether at work, among friends, or in the community. Little did he know just three days later he would be in need of emergency care himself.
