A top surgery is a huge step in this journey to becoming who Jake wants to be. Unfortunately, these are not cheap nor are they always covered by insurance. Jake is currently in school at the University of Cincinnati while working two jobs in order to pay his way through college. He is the hardest working person that I know. He is constantly putting other people and their needs before his own. He will be the first to cover anyone if they are short on money and he would never let that be a factor in someone not being able to join in on any activity. Jake is always thinking of others and how he can relieve stress for those he cares about, even if they are financial needs. If anyone deserves a little extra help, it's him.
Asking for money is not easy and it is not something that Jake could ever personally bring himself to do. As his girlfriend and best friend, I want to do whatever I can to make him happy. I know that money is something that everyone seems to be short on right now, but if you have anything to donate to Jake it would be so greatly appreciated. If this is not something in your financial budget, we ask that you please do share this post for others to see and share as well!!
We are always welcoming support and love. Please help us get anyone and everyone to be apart of Jake's journey and allow him to live a happy and comfortable life, as he deserves! :)
