Help Jake


Recommended Posts

I think it worthy to post this in HELL to get it the most publicity.


Jake, who will turn 24 on June 28, was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when he was two years old. Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited, chronic disease that causes a thick, sticky mucus to build up in the lungs and digestive system. It affects 30,000 children and adults in the U.S. and 70,000 worldwide and in some cases can result in early death.

Jake has been able to live and work with this disease until recently when his health took a turn for the worse and he was hospitalized for three weeks. He is back home resting now with the help of oxygen, but is on a waiting list for an organ donor for a double lung transplant to save his life.

This is serious surgery with serious costs. Friends and family are organizing some fund-raising events to assist Jake and his family with the expenses.

The first of these events – Breathe for Jake – will be held on Saturday, June 25 at SHOTS Sports Lounge in Clifton. (118 Broad Street, Clifton;http://www.shotssportsbarandlounge.com). The event starts at noon and runs until 3 a.m.
