Edward Blas has been in the trade show industry for 22 years, previously with GES, and now with Exhibit Fair International for the past 11 years.

In January 2015, Edward, and his wife Kimberly, were told that there son Osker had been diagnosed with Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy which would require a heart transplant.  Osker has been on the list to receive a transplant since August of 2015.   Ever since the diagnosis, Edward and Kimberly have been doing their best to put away money for Osker’s medical expenses and for the travel expenses to Los Angeles where the procedure will take place.   Kimberly will have to re-locate to California once the transplant takes place because Osker will not be able to travel for a minimum of 3 months.

To make matters even more challenging, Kimberly will not be able to work during this recovery period which creates even more of a financial burden for their family.
