The family and friends of Jason Appling are trying to raise money to help with the high costs of the necessary surgeries.

Jason is in desperate need of surgery to open his mouth. He has been unable to open his mouth for the past 4 years. This is a complication from his Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis back in 2004. After the arthritis damaged both jaw joints, then bone began to grow spontaneously and fused the jawbone to the skull. His eating is limited to shoving food through a 5mm height gap and about 1.5 inches wide. There is no chewing at all. A stomach flu would most likely kill him as would any common toothache or infection of the mouth as no one can access the mouth for any reason at all.
