I am writing this for Denise Shockey as she us not able to at this time.  As many of you know, her husband John was the Police Chief in their hometown of Rockledge, Fl.  He left early before full retirement after 32 years of service because he thought stress was making him sick.  He was ail set to enter real estate with a huge SOI.

Two weeks later, John went in to the hospital with congestive heart failure, liver and kidney failure.  He was near death.  The doctors determined that he had a heart attack in October 2009, which explained his feeling of "stress"  The heart attack was known has the "widow maker" and he has inoperable 100% blockage of the LAD artery, and is risk of sudden death.  He is on a transplant list at Shands Medical Center in Florida. John has been approved for SS benefits, but that will not start for five months.

Needless to say, Denise has not been able to work much.  Two weeks ago, Denise and John got a phone call at 4:30 am that their 18 year old son was in a bad accident.  When they arrived, Dylan was in a coma and on life support.  Dylan has had brain surgery, and is doing better, but he does have brain damage and will have a very long recovery.

Some of Denise's friends have set up a medical account at the Community Bank of the South in Rockledge Florida.  If you can find it in heart to help out it would be greatly appreciated.  If you would like to check to make sure this is not a scam, you can call Denise's broker, Ralph Cochran, RE/MAX Absolute at 321.255.1423. You can also contact Brenda Warner at the Space Coast Association of Realtors at 321.452.9490 or www.space321.com.

Thank you for your support and prayers.

 The account is in John or Denise Shockey's name

I just found out about your situation via Mr. Robert Brown's blog.  I can only imagine the heavy burden on you shoulder at this time. God promises us that if only we would lay our burden down at the cross, HE will wipe them all away.  Tonight Denise, I will bring all your burden in prayer to the cross.  Have faith.  God Bless you!
