Please Help Jackon Beck

Jackson Beck is only 2 years old and an unexpected virus with polio-like symptoms has cost him the use of his legs and arms, which the doctors are calling AFM or Acute Flaccid Myelitis. He's been in the hospital since Sunday, September 30 and there's no telling when he'll be released. Jackson's parents, Nicole and Bobby, are being as supportive and positive as they can to keep Jackson in good spirits.

Before this happened Jackson was a happy, active, bouncing boy who loves running around, swimming, climbing, playing at the park, and doting over his baby sister, Charlotte. Jackson laying in a hospital bed not knowing when he'll be able to do those things again is heartbreaking, and is something parents should never have to go through.

With round the clock care in the PICU and extensive medical testing, the cost is going to be immense. If like me, you want nothing more than to help but feel helpless, please consider contributing to manage Jackson's medical expenses. In addition giving Nicole, Bobby and Charlotte the peace of mind they are not alone.

Nicole and I have been friends since high school and Jackson is like a nephew to me. She would never ask this herself so I am asking for her. Thank you for reading their story.
