Eddie G. (California)

In 2010, a massive blockage in an artery referred to as the “widow maker” led to a decade of living with congestive heart failure for Eddie Garcia. From suffering his first heart attack to contracting a rare lung disease, it seemed like things were just getting worse. But a successful heart transplant in 2020 gave Eddie a second chance at life, and inspired him to tell his story. ESEReport.com is a blog where he shares his experiences as a working-class kid, public servant, corporate executive, and heart attack survivor. He is also author of “Summer in the Waiting Room” where Eddie shares his experience and stories that uplift readers with faith, hope, and love.
