Fundraiser at Lorain Applebee’s for Jacob’s new heart

On May 31, the Heberlings had no idea that their son was about to have a stroke. That night, Martin Heberling discovered Jacob laying on the bathroom floor, unable to move. Jacob was admitted to Cleveland’s Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital. Doctors said he had suffered a stroke caused by a clot in his brain.

Immediate surgery was performed and the clot was removed. Jacob has use of his legs and can walk, and he is able to use his left arm. Doctors diagnosed Jacob with an extremely rare juvenile heart condition called Restrictive Cardiomyopathy, for which there is no cure.

The family is raising money to pay for a heart transplant that will take place within a few months.

Lorain County Vietnam Veterans Memorial Annual Poker Run

From the ride brochure: “As American Legion riders, we travel as a Legion family and have become well known for our charitable work for children’s hospitals, schools, veterans’ homes, severely wounded service members, and scholarships. We are proud to have recently added to our list of focused efforts the ongoing preservation and upkeep of the beautiful Lorain County Vietnam Veterans Memorial honoring 98 Lorain County heroes who gave the ultimate sacrifice for freedom.”

Saturday’s 98-mile ride started at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on North Lake Street in Amherst.  The first stop was Eric Barnes’ Heroes Walk [where I caught up with them – thanks to Loraine!], the second stop was the Blue Star Memorial on Lake Road in Avon Lake, lunch break at Lake Erie Harley-Davidson on Chester Road in Avon, the third stop was at the Lagrange HONOR Memorial on West Street, the fourth stop was at the Wellington American Legion on South Main Street in Wellington, and the final stop was at the Amherst American Legion on North Lake Street in Amherst.
