After receiving the extremely difficult news that he is unable to have the heart transplant he needs, he has decided to use his time wisely with family and friends and would like to make some all important happy memories with them. His dream is to take his sisters to New York, take his little brother to see Real Madrid play in Spain among other trips such as South Africa, New Zealand, etc. He would really like to enjoy some days out with his family too. However all of these things come at a cost so we would really appreciate it if you could be as generous as you can and donate, and know that you'll be helping him and his family and friends to make invaluable memories together which I'm sure you'll agree is an important part of this process. Please read below to hear a bit more about Jamie's story:
"After 2 liver transplants at a young age (11 and 12) I thought I'd end up living a healthy life, grow up, have kids, have a family and lead a happy life. In 2012 I went into septic shock with pneumonia and spent a week or so fighting for my life in intensive care. This unfortunate episode of bad health damaged my heart to the point of needing my Aortic valve replacement which I had done in August 2015, the operation went terribly wrong and I ended up having an aortic route replacement and a double bypass. I spent 16 weeks in hospital, 13 of which were in intensive care where I spent a few weeks on life support. I came through that and now unfortunately have heart failure to the point where my hearts working to 25%. I found out that transplant isn't an option for me now and that from the drs prediction I have about a year to live. All I want now is to enjoy my time left with my family and do as many things as I possibly can before I'm not physically well enough anymore."
