They are hoping to wean Jaren from his breath support a little around 4 or 5 this afternoon.  They have lowered his sedation so he can respond a little bit now  :)

Just a reminder...BECOME AN ORGAN DONOR!

Heaven forbid a tragedy should strike your family...but please remember, organ donation can save a life! Please talk to your family and make your wishes known...I HAVE! Jaren is blood type O positive. A 'designated gift' of a liver could save his life! Spread the word!


  1. We had the privillege of meeting Jaren for the first time at the boutique/fundraiser. What a remarkable young man! He really touched our hearts. I know that sometimes part of liver can be donated from a living donor. Is this possible with PSC and how can we get tested to see if we can help Jaren? Can you elaborate on what a "designated gift" is?

  2. Jennifer, unfortunately a partial liver is not an option for Jaren. A designated gift or donor is when someone specifies that the liver donation is to go directly to Jaren rather than to the next person on the transplant list. This has to be specified by the family of the donor before they are taken off life support. Thank you for asking! Karen
