Jesse is an engaging 2 1/2 year old facing his 14th surgery. He struggles daily with pain in the most basic of bodily functions. He was born 8 weeks premature weighing only 3 lbs. 3 oz. He has undergone 13 surgeries to attempt to correct a birth defect requiring reconstruction of his urinary tract. Despite the best efforts of Jesse's doctors here in Nebraska, the surgeries have not been successful. He must now travel to Texas to see a special surgeon. Jesse still faces likely 3-5 additional surgeries to hopefully correct this issue. He also faces spinal surgery within the next 6 months for a tethered spine and has been diagnosed with a cyst in his brain.

Jesse's insurance will not pay any expenses outside the state. His parents had to get private insurance at a cost of over $450 per month. We are trying to raise money to help Jesse retain the insurance for his needed surgeries and to help his parents with the travel expenses to and from Dallas. We truly thank you for anything you can do to help!
