"My heart is in pieces right now...my soul feels like it's ripping from my chest...this beautiful young man my son Jackson has to endure a constant barrage of derogatory comments and ignorance like I've never witnessed. He is called ugly and freak and monster on a daily basis by his peers at school. He talks about suicide...he's not quite 8! He says he has no friends and everyone hates him. Kids throw rocks at him and push him shouting these horrific words...please please take a minute and imagine if this were your child. Take a minute to educate your children about special needs. Talk to them about compassion and love for our fellow man. His condition is called Treacher Collins. Maybe even look it up. He's endured horrific surgery and has several more in the coming years. Anyway...I could go on...but please educate your children. Please...share this. This shouldn't be happening...to anyone."
This was the message Jackson's dad put on FB and it has changed Jackson's life! I got to meet him in CA and gift him with a SEAL for a day experience which I will never forget, he just was able to walk out on the field with the Broncos and so much more. His mom says he is a different little boy and he has friends at school, the way it should be!
Jackson and his family should of never gone through this!
Jackson had a service dog, Rex donated to him from Whispering Hope Dog Training, although his family still has to cover the training. The end goal is to have Rex with him all of the time. With Jackson's special needs and having hearing and vision loss, Rex is a must for him. He has already bonded with him by training once a wek with Rex and having him over for sleepovers when he can. There is still a lot of work to do and that's where I came in. This work and training is expensive and this is something his family should not have to worry about!
Please consider donating a dollor, five dollars, twenty....anything to help sweet Jackson! Thank you so much!
All proceeds will go to Jackson and his family and this was approved by his parents as well!
