Join Jason Murphy's Alpha 1 Fight

"Your son is dying." These four words are words that no mother wants to hear. That no mother is prepared to hear. Last August, a sympathetic but professionally distant doctor sat down with my family to explain what was making my son, Jason Murphy, ill. My son inherited a genetic deficiency that spared him in infancy only to rob him of his health as an adult. The genetic disorder which destroyed his liver is Alpha 1 Antitrypsin Deficiency for which the only cure is a liver transplant. We embarked on the long process of adding Jason to the transplant list and obtaining temporary disability to cover his transplant surgery. However, transplant recovery is a long and arduous journey that will require us to be close to his transplant hospital, Piedmont in Atlanta. Jason's Medicaid will end a year after his transplant but his anti-rejection medication is a lifelong commitment and he is not guaranteed insurance coverage after his Medicaid ends. This is where you can help! We're looking for financial support to help cover expenses that will occur while we get Jason Murphy the life saving medical care he needs. No amount is too small and we appreciate everything you can provide.
