On January 30, 2018 Jackson tested positive for Flu B. Jackson’s symptoms began to quickly worsen and he was airlifted to Riley Hospital. His little body was battling pneumonia and a bacterial infection. Not long after arriving at Riley, he went into septic shock. Jackson was then sedated and placed on life support machines. On February 22, after several weeks in the Intensive Care Unit at Riley Hospital, Jackson Pirtle passed away from complications of the flu.
Many people have asked what they can do to help Jackson’s family during this unimaginably difficult time. If you know Sarah, then you know she would never ask for anything other than love and prayers. I am hoping we can help her with that and more.
With Sarah’s reluctant permission, I have set up this gofundme page so that we, her friends and family, can put our love and prayers into action to help take some of the strain and worry off of Sarah and her family.
Please consider contributing any amount to help pay for hotel costs and food while Jackson was in the hospital, residual medical bills, and funeral expenses. Please know that any amount you can contribute will be much appreciated.
Thank you for your love, prayers, and concern during this time.
