Jimmy Martin's medical expenses

Please help Jimmy and his family try and get through this tough time.  Jimmy was rushed to the ER on April 29th 2017 with severe stomach pain and feeling very ill.  He was admitted into the ICU with mutilple issues including complete renal failure, pancreatitis, respiratory failure, an unknown infection and several complications.  Due to some sort of issue at the hospital and insurance the hopital released him after only 11 days in there to recover.  His lab results were still very bad and he was still very sick.  After trying hard to get well at home for 30 days and after given wrong info from his GI specialist Jimmy was again rushed to the hospital via ambulance again Friday the 9th of June.  Just a day after his birthday he was readmitted.  The pancreatits was out of control and now has formed several large cysts on his pancreas as well as damage to other organs from the pancreatic enzyme trying to digest his other organs.  He is struggling with on going constant intense pain as well as nausea.  He has to be on oxygen several times a day due to the damage to his lungs.  Jimmy had a PICC line put in yesterday for long term nutrician and blood draws and iv treatments.  Unfortunately today he was told his insurance doesnt cover the IV feeding nutrition that is needed for him to be able to have proper nourishment as he cant intake any food for at least 6 months.  We are asking for as many donations as possible as the nutrition will cost around $50,000 for 6 months worth.  Please help Jimmy recover and be able to pay for the proper nutrition that is required for his pancreas to get strong enough to heal.  Any amount is appreciated.  Thank you
