Jimmy's Surgery

$11,960 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 287 people in 25 months
My name is Melissa Riedasch from Superior, Wi. My husband's niece has been with the love of her life since 2008. Karena and her now husband Jimmy have an incredible love story, but Jimmy's story hasn't always been easy. When James Walter (Jimmy) Lamoreaux was 3 years old, he sustained severe burns to his face, neck, and hands as a result of a house fire. He had several surgeries as a child but none as an adult leaving it very difficult for him to eat and grasp small and large objects. With a lot of encouragement from his wife Karena, family and loved ones, James will be having major reconstructive surgery on February 8, 2016. James has been the soul provider for his family since welcoming their son Liam, with recently purchasing a new home and vehicle. This surgery will force him to be out of work for several months for a full recovery. James has also been a pillar within our community as a youth leader coaching youth football, basketball, and wrestling among other things. Please find it in your heart to donate whatever you can to help James and Karena sustain living expenses during his recovery. Anything you can give, even the smallest amount will help with meals, house cleaning services, payments towards their SWL&P and other bills. This surgery is necessary for James to continue to be the hard worker he is and continue to lead our youth in sports! Thank you all in advance for your love and support! Please pass this along to everyone who has been blessed with knowing this wonderful man! ❤️

I was one of the nurses who took care of you when you came into the burn unit. Besides taking care of you. I used to read to you and you were a captive audience. I've wondered what happened to you and looks like you have a lovely family. Good luck on your surgeries. Positive thoughts sent your way
