Jerrett is 36 years old and is ill with a heart condition that will require a heart transplant. He has a 9 year old boy Morgan, who is the love of his life. Jerrett lost his dad at the young age of 3 due to a long battle with leukemia and we are all praying for a miracle so he can be here for his own son Morgan. He desperately needs as much help as he can get to be able receive his heart transplant. He is not able to return to work at this time as he is very ill awaiting surgery...any contributions would be very helpful to him and his family as there are MANY medical and out of town living expenses during this time.

Our family greatly appreciates anything that is contributed to help Jerrett, we are very thankful for your support. God Bless

UPDATE ON JERRETT!!

We had let you know of Jerrett's surgery to repair his upper ascending aorta. He has since recovered from this and we would like to thank everyone for the help that they have done whether it was by donation or by praying for our family!! Thank You!
Jerrett is still currently not able to work and is currently still waiting for a heart transplant, and a future surgery on his descending aorta. He is currently on numerous medications that are for his heart, aorta, and LVAD (Left Ventricular Assist Device) which is attached to his heart out through a wire/tube that goes out his abdomen into a battery pack. This keeps his heart pumping for him.
Anyways, he has now lost his insurance that was fully covering all of his medical needs when it comes to supplies and medications. Most importantly, the medications are crucial for him to keep going. The medications he needs are spendy, as well as the new insurance he has been placed on(about 500/monthly cost). He has very limited resources to be able to pay for medical needs, especially with not being able to work.
Our family on behalf of Jerrett, is asking for any donations/contributions to help him receive what he needs in order to keep him going. Thank you for taking a few minutes to read this. We thank everyone for the love and support that has been provided to us. It really keeps us going!!

Please at least share :)
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Jerrett is doing great so far. He is still in ICU And from what I gather he will be for a few weeks and then later moved to a different room. He's been opening his eyes more and more responsive.
Family is staying up there as much as we can, hotel stays and food gets spendy after a while so anything anyone can help with for family to be there would be greatly appreciated. Thank You so much. God Bless. ❤
