Benefit Spaghetti and Meatball dinner for Matt and Sami Jewell

February 22 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Matt has been diagnosed an autoimmune disease which lead to his kidney Disease which is called Crescentic glomerulonephritis which breaks down to, his filters are inflamed and has a toxin type build up on them called crescents. This type of kidney disease is what is rare. 1 in 100000 get it. He is on a steroid medication and a chemotherapy medication to help with the autoimmune and the kidney disease plus dialysis. The kidney disease caused the high blood pressure and the high blood pressure caused the heart failure. Dialysis is 3 times a week for atleast three months and if his numbers improve any by then he will be taken off the dialysis for a trial period to see if they kidneys are repairing enough to keep repairing or atleast hold their own. We are hopeful he wont need a transplant but we definitely cannot rule it out in the future. He has to wear a life vest to monitor his heart and so SCD (sudden cardiac death) does not happen. They have to go to the Cleveland Clinic to see a autoimmune specialist to get more of an insight on the specific type of autoimmune disease he has and to double the treatment for that is the correct one.
This is sponsored by the Friends of Elk and Pinegrove Townships. We hope everyone can come out and show support for Matt and Sami as they are the type of people who would give the shirt off their back for anyone in need.
