Crohn's Surgery #4

My husband, Jason, was diagnosed with Crohn's in 1996, he was only 16. He's had 3 surgeries and bowel resections since 2000. His last surgery was in 2005 and on 8/14/14 he is going in for surgery #4.

Although he was in remission for many years, it seems that the diesase has other plans. Over the last 6 months, he has been in and out of the emergancy room and hospital with obstructions. He has been given every type of medication that is currently avaiable to Crohn's paitents, but nothing has helped. 

Due to the nature of the diesease, Jason has not been able to work since April.  Now 6 months later, our savings is gone and the bills are piling up. 

Athough, I am still working full time and after cancelling all of of "luxury" items ie. cell phones, we are finding ourselve still in need of help to pay rent, utilitiy bills, and other various bills that have accumulated over the last few months. 

We know that once Jason has recovered fully and returns to work, we will be fine. A donation of any kind would be grateful and will us help us to focus on Jason's recovery and look towards the future.
