Matters of the heart

$6,330 of $9,000 goal

Raised by 133 people in 6 months
Created December 4, 2018
I'm starting this campaign  to ask for your help to raise funds for a man who truly needs your loving support.
In August, Jason was  diagnosed with congestive heart failure, after suffering TWO silent heart attacks. For the past 3 months he has undergone a daunting regimen of high test medications in hopes of strengthening his heart enough to undergo life-saving double bypass surgery. The good news is, the medication and Jason's' determination to make major lifestyle changes have been successful and  his heart  function has improved enough for him to qualify for the surgery he needs.  The bad news is, having this surgery means that he will not be able to earn income to pay rent, or the utilities or even to buy food while recuperating for up to 3 months. It's disheartening  that he now is faced with having to choose between having the surgery that he so desperately needs or continuing to work a very limited schedule just to keep a roof over his family's head until his heart inevitably gives out.
Jason has always been a hard worker. He, at times, has worked 3 jobs as a single parent of three children. Growing up and surviving the foster care system, he’s always been able to overcome any adversity that came his way but this time he needs a little assistance.  
Any amount  will be a tremendous help and so very appreciated. 
Thank you so much for taking the time to consider our request.

Hello friends
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Just want to take a minute to once again express my immense gratitude for all of your generous donations and heart felt wishes.
I am now 2 days away from having triple bypass surgery and we're about 2/3 to our goal of $9,000.
All of the money raised will be used to pay for basic household needs such as rent, electric, gas and water services, while I recover over the next few months.
If you can find it in your heart and bank account to help out with any amount - it would be most appreciated

Hi!
my name is Dallas and I would like to thank all of you for donating and sharing this fundraiser to help my Pappa get well. I'd love to stay and beg for treats but I really have to return this phone before he notices that it's missing!
I love my Pappa!

Please continue to share
