It began with an occasional fainting spell then weakness and graduated to acute shortness of breath. It took all of four agonizing years for her to go through stage one to stage five. Then early 2017 the big blow, she was then told that she was mis-diagnosed and what she was really suffering with was much worse. She had PVOD.

The journey has been long and painful. This difficult process has come with non-stop countless stays at the hospital, expensive treatments, and the inability to live a full life, and properly care for herself, interact with friends and family, and even her own seven year old son Jayden.
Jessica is a single mother of a seven year old boy name Jayden that she loves more than anyone else in this world. This entire ordeal has been difficult for him. He can't spend quality time with his mommy who is hes best friend and often he gets depressed over his mother's endless hospital stays which he is struggling to cope with.
Jessica is currently on life support, and her current status has been unresponsive while in the CICU since then. She is fighting for her life. In spite of all of the treatment, and what we all hoped was a successful lung transplant she was gifted with late last year. She is in rejection and her lungs are now operating less than 20% capacity with little improvement.
Anyone who has the privilege of meeting Jessica is immediately affected by her personality, strength and devotion to her son. She has always thought of others before herself, loves to laugh and she is a fighter. She has been so strong through it all over the years. She listened to every order her doctors gave her, handled her condition positively and refused to give in now matter how tough things became. She always approaches life with positively, with strength, a sense of adventure, and he never fails to find the silver lining when times get tough. Her slogan "Always Believe"
As you can imagine, the toll on the entire family has piled up as each day passes. No matter the outcome, we will be left with tremendous medical bills. With this small donation we can try to repay her incredible kindness, although it can never amount to the impact she has had on everyone who knows her.
All funds raised will be utilized directly to help pay for Jessica's medical bills, traveling expenses for her mother's daily visits to the hospital, the care and responsibility for her precious son Jayden well being, and the extraordinary cost of trying to stay afloat with her rent and other personal responsibilities she handled on her own while she struggling through this difficult situation.
Any possible donation of any amount would be greatly appreciated. Our family thanks you for your prayers and support.
