Jim is a 56 year old man who has become very ill. After 6 years of battling non alcoholic liver disease Jim has become hospitalized, and now will need a liver transplant. Jim is a very caring man and needs our help. Jim has always helped others in their time of need, never looking for anything in return.
Jim grew up in Harriman where he graduated from Harriman High School. He then married and they had three children before moving to Raleigh, North Carolina. They had a fourth child and moved back to Tennessee. They divorced and he remarried. Jim has worked as a laborer most of his life. In 2009, he changed his life goals and went back to school. He attended Tennessee Technology Center of Harriman where he earned a degree as a machinist. After a year of working as a capstan he was diagnosed with non alcoholic liver cancer, forcing him to leave his job. He is looking forward to returning to his normal life and getting back to his hobby of american picking. Jim and his family are committed to seeing him through this transplant.

Jim is continuing to do well. We have gotten word that he should be coming home September 19th. We are all very excited that he is doing well, has kept in good spirit and is getting to come home, we are continuing to raise money for his medical expenses and medications as insurance does not cover it all. We have a fundraiser planned for November 1st in Kingston. Hope you all are able to attend.

Jim is recovering well from surgery. He is currently on several medications to help his body accept the new liver and to reduce the risk of his body rejecting it. He is currently staying in Nashville near the hospital for the frequent visits to have his platelets checks and for monitoring. Please continue to pray. Donations are greatly appreciated as they help cover the cost of his housing near the hospital, medications and transportation.
