Dear Friends and Family,
I am writing today on behalf of my uncle, Steve Meredith Sr. and his family. Those of you who know him, know that on July 14, 2012 Steve suffered not one, but two heart attacks. He made it to the hospital just ten minutes before the first heart attack. His heart was restarted two times in the ER. Because of this trauma he is left with only one functioning side of his heart. Steve was transferred to Fort Wayne Lutheran Hospital on July 17, 2012 and two days later he underwent open heart surgery to install a Ventricular Assistive Device (VAD). The VAD is what now keeps Steve’s heart beating. Steve was released from Fort Wayne on August 7, 2012, but his biggest fight is yet to come. The VAD is not a permanent solution to Steve’s heart problem. He will need a new heart to stay alive long term.
