You Can See Jason's personal video messages over <============== HERE !

Jason Pieczonka, at the young age of 14 was diagnosed with a kidney disease called focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). The disease progressed slowly which thankfully gave him 28 years on his kidneys, but then either had to begin dialysis three times a week, or he would not survive. Jason has been on the donor list for the last year, but alas, Jason has not been doing well. Without going into specifics, he has had three close calls in the last two months alone, and the future has looked bleak. He has worked to secure a position on four transplant lists within Florida, but at this point, all the doctors agree…the only way he will survive this is to get a kidney transplant. Over the past year, two incredible individuals have stepped up and offered to donate, but due to the very strict rules of donor matching, sadly, they did not prove to be the right match.

Fast forward to last week when a donor has stepped up and offered to donate his kidney to Jason ! After exhaustive testing, we just heard that he IS A MATCH !!

And what is even more amazing, is that they have SCHEDULED THE SURGERY FOR MAY 23rd !!

This Donor has literally just saved Jason's life.

The Surgery is Scheduled for May 23rd at Miami Jackson Hospital.. (these words were the best words that Jason's family has ever heard).

The cost of the surgery for both Jason and the Donor, as well as the medical and housing costs while in Miami is terrifying to the family of course, as they have been spending all they have to get Jason to survive up to this point.

After savings and family money already donated.. they look to be about 13,000.00 short.

Here is where you come in... Rather than ask a few people for a large donation.. We figured... Why not ask thousands of people for a "little bit of help"

All we ask, is that you donate $1.00.

But here is the important part !!
By sharing the link via Email/Facebook/Twitter/Google+, you tell EVERYONE on your friends list to also donate $1.00.

And if they tell 10 people... we can EASILY reach the goal... by working together... and only donating $1.00 each !!!

We can't save the world... but we can save one life at a time. Your donation of a buck, will actually and honestly help save Jason's life.

Please help a family that truly deserves some help !

We are only running this fundraiser until June 1st, and are only asking for the above amount to cover the amount of funds the family does not already have. Once our goal is reached, we will close the fundraiser. If any funds are raised above the goal, they will be donated to the local FSGS charity, in the hopes that it will help another family.
