This sweet young family needs help.

They desperately want more time together with their dad and husband, James. While he still somehow manages to continue to go to work every day to support his family, he is losing this battle. Even his quick wit and amazing sense of humor are beginning to fade. His liver disease has reached a critical level and he now needs a transplant. With only 15-20% liver function, his time is running out with his girls. After two exhausting reviews he is on a transplant list at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona. This means he needs to relocate temporarily to Arizona to have any hope of getting help. The costs for this procedure are astronomical. While James is fortunate to have medical insurance it is not enough. James and Jodi are relocating to Phoenix in early April, in the hopes of getting this life saving transplant. Everything from rent, transportation, living expenses and out of pocket medical cost are not covered for the months they will be gone. In addition their two beautiful young daughters will need to remain behind in Washington. Josie and Katie need their parents back as soon as possible and healthy. So many people say, “What can I do to help?” Donating to this fund to help give this family more time with one another is one way to contribute. Please consider donating to this fund to give this family more time together.

It has been a difficult few days for James. The family was looking forward to a visit with the girls over the weekend. Unfortunately James ended up in the hospital on Friday with an upper GI bleed. He had a very rough night and Saturday had another endoscopy procedure. He is currently still in the hospital so he hasn’t been able to visit with the girls much. While there is very little positive to the past day or so, his MELD score was raised. This is a good thing as it moves him up on the list but it means he is getting sicker. Please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers. They need all the support they can get now. Thank you everyone for your help.

James and Jodi are in Phoenix! They arrived on the 9th and are getting settled into their temporary housing. While the temperature is well into the 90s James is still cold. He is getting set up to work remotely as long as he can and they anxiously await a phone call moving him on to receiving a liver. It is a waiting game now. The girls are in Spokane staying busy with school. Please keep them all in your thoughts and prayers and as always thank you for your support!!

I will keep you in my prayers. As Kate Gentry's grandmother, it is my pleasure to donate a bit, and I pray that your new liver arrives soon, and that the transplant is successful. May God bless each of you.
