Event Description

June 18, 2010 Updated Apr 29, 2010 at 1:19 PM EDT

Approximately 3 a.m. on Sunday, November 8th, Rick (46 years old) woke feeling discomfort. Eve, Rick’s wife, drove him to the ER at Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne, IN, and they were informed Rick was having a heart attack. He was rushed to the Catheterization (Cath) Lab and his left main ventricle artery was found to be 100% blocked. Three stents were placed in Rick’s largest artery and the heart attack was stopped. The physician indicated that although Rick may look healthy, his heart was in bad shape and there was blockage elsewhere in his heart. (The story continues below…)
These past five months have been emotionally and financially challenging for the Myers family with Rick unable to work, Eve working sporadically between hospital visits, the months of hospital bills, along with hotel and out of town expenses as Rick returns to Methodist for follow-up appointments and biopsies to check for rejection. We are holding the Rick Myers “Bless His Heart” Fundraiser to help alleviate these major financial burdens. So join us as Rick is finally home and we’re ready to say, “Heck yes!”
