This Is Jackson

Hi, I'm Melissa & this sweet little boy is Jackson. He is the son of my coworker Joseph Manning & his wife Jessie.

Jackson was born on May 23, 2017 with a condition called hydrocephalus; excessive accumulation of CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) in the brain.

Treatment of hydrochephalus involves inserting a shunt from the brain to the stomach to drain the excess CSF. But, there have been complications along the way.

With the hospital expenses adding up and Joe & Jessie unable to work because they need to be at the hospital during all of Jackson's medical procedures, I created this Go Fund Me account to help them out.

Any donation will be greatly appreciated!!! THANK YOU!!!
