Jesse was a very active individual who loved to take somone's junk and transformed it into beautiful, usable items. He loves antiques and he enjoyed refurbishing them into wine holders. Jesse is no longer able to do his passions because his condition is getting worse. He has severe edema in his legs, arms and abdomen; okay his whole body. He can't walk very far and has to be on oxygen more often than not. It was hard for him to let go of projects he had planned to complete. In order for Jesse to be considered for a transplant the doctors have to try all medication. As Jesse's sister I find it hard to see such a vibrant young man start to lose hope and let frustration set in. Well he is one medication away from being evaluated to be considered for placement on a waiting list for a lung/heart transplant.
Jesse needs financial help to be able to continue treatment, trips to Loveland and to be seen at the MAYO clinic http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/pulmonary-hypertension which is another avenue he is considering. All this takes money and Jesse is disabled but does not get enough in SS benefits to be able to pay for everyday living expenses and medical costs. Jesse's wife, Kathy is working to maintain insurance coverage but they need financial help to meet their medical needs. Jesse would also like to ask that if you are not able to provided financial support then please pray for him and his family.
