On August 25th, 3-year-old Jack Holland was admitted to the ICU at Boise Children's Hospital. He was diagnosed with E. Coli which lead to HUS, a condition that results in the destruction of blood platelets. He is in acute kidney failure and has started dialysis.
As of today, Jackman is still in the ICU and is undergoing dialysis multiple times a day. Katie, his Mom, is using her vacation time from work and is with Jack 24/7. Ben, Jack's Dad, has been driving back and forth from Gooding to Boise to be with Jack as much as possible while still working and taking care of their daughter Paige.
Based on what information they have, it looks like the Hollands will be spending the next 2-3 weeks in the hospital. This fundraiser is simply to support a good family going through a challenging time. Worries like medical bills, food, gas, and hotel accommodations are all trivial compared to making sure your child is healthy and safe at home. The goal of this fundraiser is to help the Hollands keep their focus on Jack getting better and not on money-matters.
Any amount you are able to donate will go directly to Jack's first line of support: his family. The Hollands are well-known for being there to support their friends and family at the drop of the hat; now it's our turn to support them as they endure the next couple weeks.
Please share this fundraiser and help Jackman get back to the energetic 3-year-old we all love!
