In the year of 1989 Josh Keller was born with a heart defect of Tricuspid Atresia. Josh has undergone numerous surgeries after birth which lead to a Fontan procedure that rewires the ins and outs of how blood is pumped to the body as he has one ventricle doing the jobs of two. Around the year 2010 Josh suffered a cardiac arrest and was miraculously resuscitated by neighbor and family friend Chris Carey. This event led to a pacemaker/defibrillator placement in his abdomen compared to the conventional subclavian location. Josh was eventually diagnosed with heart failure in 2019 which is fairly expected for his age and congenital defect. Josh has shown the greatest adversity one can show for the first 32 years of an individuals life. This caring bridge will be updated daily during Josh's heart transplant journey.
