TPNCares about Ben Jackson
Organized by: Kristin "KEKE" Strayhan
Dear colleagues, our longtime friend and coworker, Ben Jackson, needs your help. His wife is 30 weeks pregnant and their baby’s heart valve isn’t working properly, which required an emergency heart surgery in utero. Unfortunately, the procedure was unsuccessful (Mom and baby are still ok).
There aren't many hospitals that do this specialized surgery. Boston is the most experienced with 120 procedures done in the last 14 years, so Ben and his wife went to Massachusetts. Because of the lack of results from that surgery, additional procedures are required. Once the baby is born, he will need a valve replacement surgery, and likely additional operations for the first few years.
We ask you to first and foremost keep Ben and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
Second, they’ll be incurring so many travel and medical expenses, we are establishing a donation fund for anyone who would like to contribute.
Ben and his wife are grateful for your support and good thoughts.
