Unfortunately, since the young age of 15, Jason has struggled with Type 1 Brittle Diabetes Mellitus. A loving husband and father to four young children (soon to be five), Jason enjoys spending every minute with his beautiful family, attending church, playing drums in a local band and living life to its fullest. Jason suffers from severe retinopathy and has undergone many eye surgeries and laser treatments. As a result of his diabetes, Jason is now legally blind, and has painful neuropathy with severe damage to many other organs. A few years ago, Jason was diagnosed with end-stage renal failure, and with only 10% kidney function, he is currently on dialysis. A kidney/pancreas transplant is Jason’s only hope for a healthy life.
Since starting dialysis, Jason has received both emotional and medical support, and he’s doing much better managing his diabetes – but the damage is irreversible. Jason is currently undergoing evaluations at the Oklahoma Transplant Center in hopes of being placed on the active transplant waiting list. If Jason receives his transplants, he will become a non-diabetic and no longer need dialysis!

Yesterday morning at 2:30 am, Jason was rushed to the ER. He had went into diabetic Ketoacidosis. His blood sugar was over 800 and his potassium was 8.4. His nepherologist said he wouldn’t died if he had waited any longer to come in. They got him stable, and sent him to ICU.
Jason is doing better now. In ICU. They finally let him eat (it’s been 3 days). They said he’s still in the Ketoacidosis stage (acidic blood) but he’s almost out if it. Not sure how long he’ll be here. His nepherologist said he was basically dead yesterday. He said he was so scared himself that Jason wouldn’t make through dialysis without his heart stopping. Thank you, everyone for the thoughts and prayers. We love you all!
