Jay Needs A New Kidney

Jay needs a new Kidney. 

My name is Brad Noonan, I am from Dubuque, IA and my close friend and brother Jay Blackman recently found out he needs a kidney transplant due to hereditary high blood pressure. He’ll be on dialysis daily until he can get a new kidney. He doesn’t have health insurance currently and the costs from this and lost wages will need to be offset somehow. We also would like to find reliable transportation for him to be able to get to work and appointments without walking. Once our goal is met we will be using the money to find Jay a car and giving him the remaining funds to use for time off work and future medical expenses or emergencies. Anything you can do will help.

Jay has always been a positive person and one of the funniest people I know. He’s been in the hospital alone due to Covid 19 not allowing visitors in hospitals at this time, and is having his life changed completely. I would like to do anything possible to help relieve any stress possible for him during this difficult time. 

thank you so much

Nichole Becker and Jason Goodman have been kind enough to start making T Shirts and Koozies to help raise money for Jays Gofundme with all proceeds minus material costs going to it. You can find the page for those here - https://fb.me/e/4HXbZ4Wgh
