Jack's battle with a mountain lion

Donation protected

My sweet five-year-old nephew, Jack, was attacked by a mountain lion in the late afternoon on 1/31/23 while walking near his family's farm in Half Moon Bay, CA. That mountain lion picked the wrong kid and mama to mess with. Jack and his mom bravely fought off the attack but he was left with some battle wounds in the process.
Jack has many lacerations, especially on his precious face, in addition to a fracture near one eye. He is covered in cuts, bruises and scratches but his spirit remains intact. He is the most courageous, adventurous little guy I have ever met and I am not surprised that if there was a kid who could wrestle a mountain lion and come out on top, it would be Jack.
I started this gofundme to help Jack's parents cover medical expenses and to help them with whatever their needs are on the farm while they focus on his recovery. They are a hard-working, amazing family, dedicating their life's work to running a program for the area's homeless population on the farm, in addition to a program that serves underprivileged students. Now it is their turn to be on the receiving end of the kindness and compassion that they are normally giving. Any donations will be used to cover expenses and hopefully to help keep a smile on Jack's face if there is something special he would enjoy while he is recovering. Thanks for considering helping!
