Jason is a 37-year-old father who was diagnosed with stage four liver disease (cirrhosis) caused by NASH (Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis). He is in need of a life-saving liver transplant and has been listed since August 2015 with the University of Utah transplant team in Salt Lake City. He is getting progressively worse and as of two weeks ago, Jason was one point away from reaching a MELD score of 35, which would place him high on the list for transplant.
Jason is a loving father to his 10-year-old son Dayton and has been married to Ashli, his best friend and the love of his life, for over six years. He and his family are looking forward to life post-transplant and to a long and healthy life together.

Jason had a successful liver transplant August 8th, 2016. With any surgery there can be risk of complications. Jason went into renal failure and is now in need of a kidney transplant. He is on dialysis three days a week and also has paralysis of the stomach so it's very difficult to eat.
Any donation to help with medical bills and expensive medications that insurance won't cover as well as housing in Utah post-transplant would be greatly appreciated!
Anyone interested in donating a kidney to him are urged to visit uofulivingdonor.org to fill out a questionairre for evaluation.
Thank you and God bless!

Jason got his liver transplant yesterday, 8/8/16!!!!
After being admitted to the hospital in Boise back on the 26th of July, he rapidly went into kidney failure and was life flight back to SLC to the University of Utah Hospital. They got his infection cleared up (sepsis) and stabilized his kidneys as best as they could and found him a liver. His first words after waking up were, "I did it" and gave two thumbs up! Now he is on a long road to recovery. Thank you all for the love and support!
