Medical Fundraiser for Dwain, Woody, & Jean Jones

Immediate help is needed for the Jones family.  They are currently dealing with several serious medical conditions and they need as much love, prayers, and support as possible. 
Woody was diagnosed with early-onset Dementia 7 years ago at age 62.  Jean and Dwain, have  cared for Woody at their home up until last week.   Unfortunately,  Woody's health has continued to decline  due to dementia over the years. Due to this, and Jean's and Dwain's  medical issues, Woody has been temporarily placed in a nursing/rehabilitation facility in Rocky Mount, NC. 
Jean and Dwain (age 47) were both diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver that comes from a hereditary gene.  Dwain is currently at Duke Hospital in ICU awaiting a liver transplant. He is on the list, but has had many touch-and-go moments.  He will remain in the ICU until the liver transplant.  Jean also suffers from cirrhosis and is on several medications to keep her liver functioning properly. She will also be Dwain's caretaker once he receives the liver transplant.  She is currently traveling  daily in between Nashville, NC to  see Woody and Durham, NC to be with Dwain during this difficult time. Chris, and other family and friends are traveling to visit both as
well.  

Funds will help - 
*temporary housing for Woody at a Nursing facility for approx. 2 months during Dwain's recovery from the transplant. 
*parking , hotel stays, and transportation costs to and
from Duke for Jean
*a short  term home close to Duke for Jean and Dwain
while he recuperates from the surgery
(approx. 6 weeks) 
* out-of-pocket medical expenses for the family including   medications needed for each of them


Thank you to all family and friends for your support of our family - Jean, Woody, and Dwain during this difficult time.  
Every donation, no matter what amount, is greatly appreciated! All donations will go directly to Jean Jones.
