Jason Erb Liver Donor Medical Fund

Jason was supposed to go back to work on November 6th but the end of last week he developed a hernia right at the top of his incision. He went to Penn this week to meet with his surgeon. Dr. Kim Olthoff will be repairing the hernia next Friday the 17th and Jason will be home on the 18th. This has delayed him being able to go back to work for at least 6 more weeks so if you're able to help them... it would be much appreciated. Thank you so much for your kindness and your prayers. Love, Ron & Rhonda

Victory Church sent out a request to find a living liver donor for a member of our tribe, Ronald Gessner. Twelve people came forward to apply to be donors and all were eliminated for one reason or another except for one. 

Ron contracted Hepatitis C in his 20's and it destroyed his liver over the past 25 years. He was cured of the hep C thanks to a new drug called Harvoni but he's in end stage liver disease due to having the virus for so many years. 

Here's Jason's story... 

Jason Erb, the husband of Deneen who have 3 boys and also care for their grandparents felt a strong calling by God to apply to donate a portion of his liver.  After much prayer and fasting Jason knew he was the one God chose to be the donor. 

After 8 months of testing and having to lose 35 pounds, Jason was cleared for surgery.  The liver transplant will take place on Tuesday, June 27th at Penn University Hospital in Philadelphia.

This fund will be used to cover any medical expenses that aren't covered by insurance plus at least 3 months living expenses while Jason is recuperating and not able to work.
