EL DORADO COUNTY, Calif. — It all started with a Facebook post. Jeramey Sheridan is one who normally doesn't reach out for help, but this time he was faced with no other option.
In February, Sheridan was diagnosed with stage 4 heart failure, also known as cardiomyopathy. It prevented him from doing yard work and other landscaping around his house. It got to a point where his property was overrun with weeds. To make matters worse, his riding lawnmower broke.
Left with no other options, Sheridan took to the El Dorado County Chat page on Facebook and left a long post asking if anyone who would be able to help him with his yard. Within 24 hours, his post had more than 100 comments and 60 shares. Everyone was reaching out to see what they could do to help.
"It was incredible. It honestly brought me to tears. I'm trying not to cry right now. It's just incredible how quickly the community comes together for someone they don't even know," said Sheridan. "It makes me feel like there's still good people out there."
There are approximately a dozen volunteers that plan to show up to his house on Saturday to help him with landscaping.
Sheridan will continue his doctor checkups every other month, but in the meantime, he's extremely grateful to Marshall Medical Center for all their work.
