The family and friends of James Daigle raising money for his heart and liver transplant.

I met James Daigle in April of 2009 when I started dating his son Randall. The thing that has always stood out to me the most about James was his spirit, he has a good heart, and you can feel it when you're around him. In the near three years that I have known James he has been in and out of the hospital 2 hours away from our small town, some stays being for months at a time. James has stage four liver failure, which has caused him to go almost completely blind, only seeing shadows from one eye, and only at very close distances, he also has congestive heart failure. Currently James is waiting to be placed on the Transplant list for a liver transplant. James does have insurance, but will be expected to pay a part of the cost of surgery himself, as well as they have the cost of transportation to and from houston weekly, sometimes more, for doctors appointments now. As time gets closer for the transplants James and His wife will have to relocate to Houston until after surgery when doctors feel he is ready to return home. It could be years. As time has gone on I have been fortunate enough to marry into James's family and am proud to call myself his daughter in law, and give him the joy that is his Granddaughter Addyson. I believe that any one that knows James would say that he is an amazing person. James has done a lot for many people, He served 20 years to his country in the United States Navy. James will never have his eye sight back, but with the transplants he can have a chance at the long life he deserves, and I am trying to do whatever I can to lighten this financial weight that has been placed on my father and mother in law. I pray that others out there can help him too. Thank you so much for reading James's Story, and God bless you!
