For those who have had the privilege of meeting Junior, you know that his personality is larger than life, and that his heart is full of love. Junior never shies away from an opportunity to make his friends and family laugh, ignite a dance party, or cuddle with his cat baby.
Currently Junior is facing a potential heart valve replacement, but has suffered numerous complications that has made progress difficult. Since being admitted, it has been discovered that one of his heart chambers has developed cartilage, making it more difficult for his blood to flow appropriately - a side effect of his 2 valves having to work extra hard. His heart is also leaking, which means that the surgery to replace his valve is more complicated, which may mean that he needs to life-flighted to a facility that is better able to handle the procedure. He has also developed pneumonia, and is unable to breath on his own due to the fluid in his lungs.
We are asking for support in this difficult time. While the road to treatment is still unclear, we know that at the very least we need help covering Juniors immediate expenses. Thank you all so much for any help you can provide. Prayers are welcome.
We will update everyone as we learn more.
