“A lot of times we don't think of questions when we're right there face-to-face, but then afterword we have a million questions,” Jenny says. “They spend as much time as they need to answer our questions.”
Jason describes his son as a “kind, sweet, caring kid. He's very brave.”
“He is a miracle and a constant reminder to us how precious life is,” Jenny adds. “He never complains about his conditions and lives his life to the fullest every single day, no matter what he is going through. He is grateful that he has been given his chance at life and never takes it for granted.”
