Brian's J Tube Surgery

Brian Miles, is a 25 year old man with a chronic illness called Rumination Syndrome. He cannot eat or drink anything without ruminating [involuntary vomiting]. He was diagnosed with this illness when he was 15. 
In 2012, Brian weighed 150 pounds. He is currently 105 pounds. This is very detrimental to him as he is 5'8" and an extremely active person. Brian is a husband, father, certified personal trainer / fitness instructor at the local gym, and a teacher at the local Christian school.
There is no known cure for Rumination Syndrome, so we are asking for donations because a J tube [bypasses stomach & goes directly to the small intenstine] is necessary for nutritional support. Brian will have the surgery in June 2014. In additon to the cost of the surgery, the donations will be used for home health costs.
We thank you all so much for your love, prayers, & support!
With sincere appreciation,
-Samantha [Brian's wife]
