Friends of Jason Edone

Jason was born with Esophageal Atresia & Tracheoesophageal Fistula which is the  imperfect formation of the esophagus  & Trachea. These issues were resolved shortly after birth however 33 years later problems began again. Jason made 3 trips to NYC to see a internationally known esophagus Dr. On his 3rd trip to NY Jason learned he would be having his esophagus replaced the following week leaving his wife's paycheck as the only income. Jason went thru his 3 weeks vacation on his prior trips to NYC. Jason was denied short term disability given the fact they said it was a pre existing condition.
 

After spending a month in ICU he's back in New Jersey recovering at his mother's house.   There is no time frame yet when Jason will be back to work given set backs and the distance between his home and the doctors.
