Jim has lived a life of adventure, enduring life’s hardships with humor.

Jim’s parents struggled with their own demons of drugs and alcohol, often neglecting his simple needs when he was a child. He ran away from home at age 15, choosing to fend for himself on the city streets instead of trying to survive their bad choices at home.

After a 13-hour surgery, Jim has been given a new chance in life with a new liver and kidney. The transplant team are very happy with his progress at this point. His new organs are already working in his body and it is a miracle. He is in a lot of pain but this is totally understandable. The doctors explained he will have good and bad days but this is all a part of the process of recovery. We are now looking ahead to our future and preparing for our long term stay here in Seattle. Our goal is to find housing nearby with limited stairs and a full kitchen so we can prepare meals at home. We are overwhelmed with feelings of gratitude for all the kind messages of love and support we have received.
