    I adore Jason Leitman. He has most definitely changed my life, and I’m no youngun. His outlook is so positive. Jason is so intelligent on so many levels. Through him I’ve totally changed my mind about the way I feel as being a donar with my organs. Now-It is a *most* definite. It would take this entire page to tell all of his positives. For all he is enduring medically makes this even more wonderful. He appreciates the smallest things. If you should ever need him if something is making you uncomfortable, trust me, he’s there in a heartbeat and does not panic while guiding you. Okay, the novel will begin shortlly so I’d better wrap this admiration up now.
    I want to thank you personally, Jason, for all I have received from your intelligence, kindness and showing that one can do most everything if they set their mind to it. Doubtfully, many exist with his condition and continuing to make more positives to help our group fhat feels like an extended family.
