I was very excited to meet this special little girl. She is baby #5 and you could tell because nothing I did could disturb her. She was wrapped up nice and toasty.
This baby girls mommy and daddy have been working hard to raise money toward her dad's pancreas and liver transplant. I was happy to meet her mom, Ashley but dad was unable to attend the session because he was at dialysis.
Jason has struggled with Type 1 Brittle Diabetes Mellitus since he was 15. He is father to five young children, Lydia being their newest addition. Jason suffers from severe retinopathy and has undergone many eye surgeries and laser treatments. As a result of his diabetes, He 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.
