The family and friends of Jay Kettelhut are uniting to raise money to help with his medical expenses. Please show your support!!!!

Jay Kettelhut suffered a life threatening brain aneurysm while en route to the ER on April 2, 2010. He spent the next month in a coma and in serious danger from various complications including pneumonia. His primary doctor at St. Joseph's Hospital in St. Paul (National Brain Aneurysm Center) said "he was the worst pulmonary disaster I have ever seen." Somehow, Jay was able to beat the odds and make a miraculous recovery, and was released from the hospital on May 18, 2010.

In January of 2011, Jay had a follow up angiogram at St. Joseph's Hospital where it was discovered that Jay's aneurysm had grown in size. Jay subsequently will need another aneurysm coiling procedure which is scheduled for February 3, 2011.

As you can imagine, Jay's medical bills are astronomical, and will only become worse with this added procedure. Donations will be used to help pay for Jay's medical bills and expenses. All of your generous contributions, thoughts and prayers are deeply appreciated!
