Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place!

Jay has been dealing with autoimmune hepatitis and primary cirrhosis cholangitis for 22 years now.  In 2011 he was added to the liver transplant list at the Penn State Hershey Medical Center and has since been in and out of the hospital on multiple occasions for infections in his biliary tract. 

Since April of this year, he has been earning exception points, which allows him to go higher on the transplant list. After recently praying with the church elders of Lebanon Evangelical Free Church, Jay felt more at peace with the possibility of a transplant in the near future. As of December 26, Jay earned more points to be moved up the transplant list, which puts him as the highest recipient in his blood group at Hershey Med. 

To continue along with us on this journey and for updates, please check out the updates (the first update was a pleasant Christmas surprise!) We appreciate your support and words of hope, prayers and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
