I want to thank all of you who donated to Jay’s GofundMe. I had originally posted this at Conservatics and a few certain assholes tried to say it was a fraud and fake. Those idiots know who they are and karma awaits them.

The page has been updated to let you all know how things are going with him. He will have to have a procedure done and then surgery. He’s really bummed about it but it is what it is. He’s never been through something like this so all help whether monetary or prayers, are very much appreciated.
