Rise Up Jason A (9:30AM CFS ATHLETE) – UPDATE #1

As a handful of you know, one of our dear gym members (Jason A – 9:30AM) went into the hospital with flu like symptoms mid-January. After he was admitted and tested, we were told he had developed Necrotizing Fasciitis, which is extremely rare and often fatal if not caught early enough. It’s a pernicious infection in that it can stem from a wound as small as a hangnail.

It is still unknown how he got it, but by the time Jason made it to the hospital, the infection was very serious. He was in septic shock causing widespread organ failure and dangerously low blood pressure. The news was dire. HOWEVER, starting late on the second day and continuing since that time, Jason has made huge improvements…

In true Jason fashion – he is far surpassing expectations with his fighting spirit and love for life. He has a very long and difficult recovery ahead of him, but we are confident that our Jason will keep kicking ass, like he does daily in the gym.

HOW CAN WE HELP?!

For those of you who know Jason, you know how incredible of a man he is. He is a caring family man, a loving and hilarious friend, a HUGE Falcons fan, an ANIMAL on a bike, and an even bigger stud in the gym. He has been a member of our box for years and works his tail off (while somehow always smiling!) every time we see him.

Jason and his family are fighting their biggest fight yet (this is by far Jason’s toughest WOD) and I want the CFS community to ‘Rise-Up’ and help in any way we can!

Jason’s friends and family have set up a few easy ways for us to help. 

 

1 – FOOD

You can help Jason by helping Jess (Jason’s Incredible Wife) with meals and even chores around the house.

2 – FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTIONS

If you are able to make a financial contribution, please note that all proceeds will go directly to Jason’s medical care and treatment.

Your funds will be disbursed to the Agurs by the James-Staniszewski Foundation, a non-profit charitable organization. In return, you will receive a receipt for your taxes. You should expect this receipt to arrive within the 4th quarter of the year.

3 – MORE FOOD/DRINK 

Let Jess’ favorite restaurant come to her after a busy day of working, being at the hospital and taking care of the girls! Go to UberEats and choose any dollar amount. Add riseupagur@gmail.com as the recipient and a gift card will be emailed to her like magic!

 

 

Please keep your eyes on our WEDNESDAY blog posts for a while, as this will be where we provide you with Jason updates as we receive them!

Jess (Jason’s amazing wife) wanted me to share this bit of encouraging information she was told by the ICU nurses and doctors…

“All of the nurses and doctors in all ICU areas have said that the main reason he’s (Jason) done so well is because he was FIT and HEALTHY.”

She wants us to realize HOW important keeping our bodies fit and healthy is.

Jason’s dedication to his health and wellness over the years is literally saving his life right now.
