The family and friends of Jesse Guzman are uniting to raise money to help with the medical expenses incurred for his care.

Jesse Guzman a healthy young guy, all including our family has thought “What happened how did he get sick?” One day my brother is taking dance lessons for his best friends wedding. He caught a cold and to prevent it from spreading at his friends wedding he went to the doctors for medicine. He received cough medicine and antibiotic. He took the meds and the next day he woke up with a headache,... the following day, “eye pain” he followed up with his Dr. and after not much relief a few days later had a fever, extreme eye pain, and a headache. An ER visit was made, it led to being admitted for an overnight stay at the local hospital. He felt “better” and was in great spirits, the following day he became worse, he had “acute liver damage”, which led to being moved to the ICU unit.. that night we were informed, “that is all we can do for him, we are sorry..” and he needs a liver transplant--but it is very unlikely to get it..(healthcare ins. complications). Through prayer, he was admitted at USC Keck Hospital, and receiving the best care. Yet Jesse is battling a huge fight!! He needs YOUR PRAYER!! On arrival it seemed perfect- he was placed on a level 1 for an organ transplant..but the liver failure had done damage to his brain and kidney. He lost brain function, has little brain waves and kidney failure. The liver transplant can’t be done due to the brain not working, The prognosis is BAD, for both the brain and liver. The Dr.s are not giving up, they normally would stop but have felt the presence of prayer and believe Jesse will fight through!! Tonight we will know if Jesse has brain waves--KEEP ON PRAYING for our brother Jesse.

God’s work is a mystery, we don’t understand but We TRUST in GOD and we know God exists. Our family thanks everyone that has been praying for Jesse’s recovery, miracles are unfolding with each prayer!! We are not loosing hope and faith and ask you to not loose it too! Keep on praying for Jesse, my family, and YOURS. God is asking us to unite in prayer. Prayer Warriors KEEP the Faith!!

Update December 19 from Nancy Guzman: More tests are being done, we Trust in the Lord that he is creating his masterpiece. The Drs state his blood is not flowing in his brain and, yet their is a little bit of flow in the brain stem and a muscle reflex in a pupil. We were told last night that they don’t know when, but to be prepared for the worst. We thank you for your prayers and support. It is through the love of our community that we remain strong. The prayers are being heard, that is a fact! Thank you! ~The Guzman Family

All your prayers for the Guzman family are still needed to help them get through this difficult time, but they will also be needing our help for the medical expenses incurred for Jesse's care. Please let your donation be a Christmas gift for the Guzman family.
