“Special thank you goes out to Eddie Van Hartman for giving us this nomination,” Jason said. “Eddie is also going through his own battle with a kidney disease that has now put Eddie on dialysis and in search of a kidney. This has made this nomination extra special to us. He continues his search for an O positive kidney match.”
“May everyone who reads this pray for both of these dear folks,” Jason said.
