Help Jeromiah

Pin It

Jeromiah is a 14 year old boy with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.  I've had the amazing experience of working with my ward and community to help raise money for Jeromiah so he can get a lifesaving back surgery that will straighten out his severe scoliosis.  He recently had a surgery where they put a feeling tube in his stomach.  Needless to say, his parents have a lot of medical bills - and they don't have insurance.

I greatly respect both of his parents.  His mom is honestly one of the kindest people I know.  Jeromiah's mom, Deborah, has three children from a previous marriage and moved here from England to marry her current husband.  Bryce has one child from a previous marriage.  I really look up to him for knowing what he was getting into with Jeromiah's disease and still be willing to taking it on, something even Jeromiah's biological father wasn't ready to do.  Jeromiah's parents, Deborah and Bryce have their own letterpress company.

My brother filmed a documentary about Jeromiah.  He's seriously an amazing boy.  Jeromiah is very intelligent and kind.  He scored in the top 10% in science in the nation for his age.

If you could please help us pass along his story by posting this video: or his webiste: on your blog, facebook, website, etc. so we can get help for his family to his back surgery and much more. Any little bit helps!
