The family and friends of Jordan Asher are coming together to raise funds for an upcoming kidney transplant and to pay some medical bills.

Jordan is a 13-yr-old boy who is such an inspiration to many people including me. He has overcome many obstacles in the past 5 1/2 years including a very rare kidney disease, which destroyed both of his kidneys leaving him to be on dialysis on a daily basis. He also has cardiomyopathy (congestive heart failure) which left his heart to only work at 13% at one point and my husband and I were told he wouldn't make it much longer. That was over 3 years ago!!! He's still here and his heart now works at the low 50% and it's almost back to a normal range. He has also developed severe chronic anemia, tumoral calcinosis, Osteodystrophy (bone disease) which has caused dramatic crippling in his hips, knees, and legs, and it also caused him to develop scoliosis. Through all of this...he still presses on. Recently...we've been approached by the dr that he is now eligible for a kidney transplant!!! We thought this day would never come. But we're here now. Another husband, Jordan's father, will be the donor for Jordan's new kidney. They were a 6 out of 6 match and we were told that is rare. Usually, only twins have perfect matching. Our needs are to pay some medical bills that are piling up over the years and currently. To pay our regular household bills while my husband is out of work due to the donation of his kidney. We also have great financial need to have transportation money to travel back and forth to Nashville several times a week during all of this process...we need money for lodging, food, some prescriptions, etc. We are a one-income family and Jordan does receive SSI...but it's still not enough. I'm a full-time student trying to make a difference in our families life. I would be working a full-time job...but due to our circumstance and the amount of time we spend in dr's offices and the hospital...that is not possible at this time. Please help make this little boy's dreams come true by donating and helping us reach our goal for his transplant and to help pay off some medical bills.
Thanks and God Bless!
