Give the gift of a new heart for a retired Police Officer, Ex-Firefighter and Air Force Veteran in desperate need of a heart transplant.

In 2005, my dad had his first heart attack at the age of 36 while on duty as an Undercover Police Detective. Since that day, My family and I have learned the true test of heart disease and heart failure; following 19 heart attacks, one occipital stroke that took half of his vision, two implantable defibrillators/pacemakers, 22 shocks from the defibrillators, and multiple surgeries to buy us more time to find a solution for his steadily weakening heart. My dad has always stayed active and has come back from every set back that his heart challenges him with, and now its my turn to return a kindness and help him get a new heart to make him stronger. For my little brother, Lukas who is 12 years old; for myself, Nicole to see my father around long enough to have grandchildren, for our family to share life and laughter with; and for his friends, who he would lay his own life down for.

OFFICIALLY LISTED TODAY!! After some slight delays after being approved to be listed, for more evaluations and testing, today he was listed officially on UNOS (United Network for Organ Sharing)! Now we begin the daunting part of this experience, the actual wait for a new heart...

We wanted to say thank you to everyone who has been supporting our journey through this difficult time along the way! We have LOVED seeing everyone wearing their Heart of A Warrior shirts! It's a very emotional time right now but we're ready for the fight.
