Here is a little bit of Jake's story. At 11 years old he was diagnosed with diabetes. In 2011 he was diagnosed stage 3 renal failure. He was diagonosed with Hepatitis-C stage 2. After many treatmnets in 2016 he was cured of the Hep-C. His blood type is "O" which is an uncommon blood type. In 2013 he had a potassium induced heart attack. He started dialysis in 2014. He is currently getting dialysis 3 to 4 times a week. He had 3 fistula surgeries. He has been unable to work since 2014. In 2015 he had a heart catheterization and a liver biopsy witch caused internal bleeding and infections. He has had several liver treatments. A bone marrow biopsy was also peformed. In 2017 he went into septic shock and was put on life support. He had to have 2 blood transfusions and he had to have 2 additional fistula surgeries. Jake also had an increadibly low white blood cell count (also known as neutropenia).
This little family has been through so much and have battled through this crazy life together. They are so strong but really need our help right now.
