Jim has had many struggles in his life. His disease has progressed to the point that he will need a liver transplant. The physical and emotional path towards transplant is overwhelming. Now we are preparing for the financial aspect of transplant. Even with insurance, the cost of the transplant presents a challenge that we cannot meet alone.
Jim grew up in Manistee, MI and attended Kendall School of Art & Design. The outdoors and art have been his passions since childhood. The love he has for his family is the only thing that surpasses that passion. His children mean the world to him and he is struggling with the realization that without a transplant he will miss out on many milestones yet to come in their lives.
