THE STORY:

I've started this CrowdRise page for our dear, dear friend Jason. Jason's personality and dedication to family and friendship make him a role model for many. He has the biggest heart, and has so much love to share. He's struggled with several medical issues, but he's never let it get the best of him. Regardless of what may be happening with his health, he's always full of joy and the first one to lend an ear. He's first in line to help everyone, whether it's advice or the last dollar in this bank account. Right now, Jason is struggling to cover the cost of a surgery that could mean life or the less friendly alternative (description below). Any donation of any kind is greatly appreciated. What's happening: A large thyroid mass, the size of two fists on both sides, is squeezing off his wind pipe and pushing on his esophagus. Breathing becomes more difficult and concerns of long term effects run wild. Doctors attempted to remove it on October 3rd but after he was under anesthesia, they had difficulty inserting a breathing tube due to the size of the mass. Surgery then had to be stopped. Jason is now being sent to the KU Medical Center for further treatment and surgery. He has to see more surgeons, doctors in internal medicine, another anesthesiologist and have even more pre-op testing done next week. Surgery will hopefully be scheduled quickly thereafter. His insurance will only cover so much, leaving his out of pocket expenses over $5,000, just for surgery. He is limited on his time off from work, and doctors are unsure how long he will need to remain in the hospital or how long it may take until he is released to return to work due to the size and location of the thyroid mass. At this time doctors are unsure if the mass is cancerous. Once removed, they'll get their answer. If you are able, please help Jason on his journey. It's not cheap, and it'll be a tough recovery. But, with our support, he'll get the medical attention he needs.
