Default Please offer a prayer!

J.J. Nicastro a 12 year-old Little Leaguer from here in Gloucester is fighting for his life. A fast moving virus infection has permanently damaged his heart only a few days ago. As I type J.J is on life support . Plans are that an artificial heart which is being assembled now in Germany specifically for J.J. will be implanted long term until a donor heart is found.In the meantime doctors are hoping that his other organscan get stronger again to have a better chance for survival. This city is amazing,by word of mouth hundreds showed up the other night for a vigil,this city has bonded together for J.J. and his family and no one here including J.J. is giving up. A localBlood Drive has been organized for J.J. but anyone anywhere can give in his name. Though I don't know J.J. personally... I do know many of his family. All are wonderful thoughtful human beings. Sons and daughters of Gloucester Fishermen whoknow all to well how precious life is.

Thankyou, Jay

We as parents and human beings should never take our children for granted. Life can change in an instant. Our heart felt thoughts and prayers go out to the Nicastro family.

J.J. update: So far your prayers are being answered. His condition is improving and is now listed as stable. He has improved so much in the past 48 hours that he is now able to have the artificial heart implanted today that has arrived from Germany.If everything goes as planned, he will have that heart until a donor heart is found. On Wednesday he made eye contact with his dad John and moved his fingers! According to his uncle David who by the way just arrived from serving in Iraq,said the doctors are encouraged by the incredible strides and how much he has progressed!

On behalf of J.J and his family,thankyou for all your prayers.....keep them coming! Jay
