John B. - New Jersey

Hero: John B.

Location: Mahwah,New Jersey

Description: Inspirational Determination

My father had a heart attack in May of 2012 and was immediately rushed in for open-heart surgery. While trying to cope with the post trauma of this event, his wound became infected. Within a six-month period, he was advised to undergo a total of three very painful and traumatic open-heart surgeries, none of which cured his infection. During all of this he has had to stay indoors the majority of the time and has been on numerous antibiotics and drugs which affect his energy levels. One day he mistakenly did not follow the assigned protocol. He became dizzy and fainted, only to land on his face and break his nose. Over the last 6 months, my father has had to experience a roller coaster ride of draining emotions and a horrible feeling of pure vulnerability and uncertainty in the hands of many medical teams he gave his faith to. He has started over with an entirely new team and is hopeful for a wonderful chapter in 2013. What is heroic about this, you ask? My father faced the most common fear there is – the fear of dying yet he rose above it. Most importantly, during this journey he has not lost his values or belief system of God even for a moment – and has a powerful, unspoken determination to beat this.
