In July 2018 our dear friend Jason Hagen discovered that he was in liver failure. This devastating news came on the heels of him losing his job of almost 30 years.
Since that time Jason and family (his wife Laura and daughter Hazel) have been adjusting to a new reality. He has already had a couple of stints in the hospital dealing with various complications of his condition. His road to recovery will be challenging and long, barring some kind of miracle.
Currently he is in a 6-month waiting period before he will be eligible for a liver transplant. In this time the doctors are monitoring him for any kind of improvement in his liver function.
Due to Jason’s health challenges, he is unable to consistently work. And although he currently has health insurance, his coverage will end as of early 2019.
We are looking to raise $100,000 to cover the Hagens' ongoing medial bills as well as living expenses during Jason’s recovery.
