Hope for Jesse

Jesse was diagnosed with a brain tumor on Saturday, November 1, 2014 and suffered a seizure the following Monday morning around 3am.  The tumor is located in the right temporal lobe and has been causing him to have several, very small, seizures every day for the last while. Doctors weren't sure what they were until just recently, because of the large seizure. 

He is 26 years old and just recently engaged. Anyone who knows him can attest to his generosity, selflessness and quality sense of humor. This news has suddenly changed life all around us, from planning a wedding to trying to figure out how the costs of these surgeries will be covered.

Jesse does not have health insurance. At the age of 26, being a healthy young man and the cost of insurance being at the rate that it's at, it's difficult in many ways to justify the cost of even the smallest coverage plan. Unfortunately, things (like brain tumors) come up and emergency surgeries become a little harder to cover. 

Over the past week, friends and family have been so supportive about everything Jesse has and will be going through.  We would like to offer a way for everyone to show their generous support by contribulting to Hope for Jesse to offset his medical expenses. We're here to support him through this difficult time. We find out after the surgery whether or not he has to undergo chemo. Until then, we'll keep our fingers crossed and our hope strong!
Please join us and donate. 

Thank you for your support for Jesse and for Brain Cancer Awareness!
The night we found out about his tumor...still in happy spirits! :) He's got this. We have this.

Update** 
Jesse's Pre-op MRI is scheduled for November 19th and his surgery is scheduled for November 25th at Greenville Memorial Hospital.
