Jason was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at the age of 8 months. At age 26, Jason’s disease has progressed to the point that his doctor has presented him to be evaluated for a double lung transplant. His lung function has dropped from 80% to 23% in the last five years. At this rate of decline, the transplant is Jason’s only hope for survival. Some may consider this a time of despair, but Jason is only looking forward to his bright future. He and his wife, Geri, are currently in the in vitro fertilization process, as the medication that Jason will be taking after his transplant (for the rest of his life) will make having children impossible. They are looking forward to building a happy little family together.
Pre and post procedure costs will be over One million dollars even with good insurance in the first year. Please help lighten the burden on Jason and Geri by donating to this cause.
