Support Maleka and Tiran Jackson

Donation protected
As Maleka & Tiran were celebrating their 15 year anniversary in the Bahamas, a tragic boating accident on June 30th claimed the life of Maleka and left Tiran in critical condition.  Maleka is survived by her husband, Tiran and 12 year old son.  With the support of the family, we are raising funds to cover medical and travel expenses as Tiran's trauma has resulted in an amputation and other severe injuries.  He has a long road ahead, which will include multiple surgeries and physical therapy. Funds will also be used to help with the care of their young son, who is currently in the care of out-of-state family members and upon recovery, a widowed husband. Maleka was a loving Mom, dedicated wife, grateful daughter and supportive friend.  She will be greatly missed and her legacy will live on forever.  Thank you in advance for your support of the Jackson family.  

After speaking with Tiran and his doctors, our goals needed to be adjusted. We have since identified the following benchmarks needed to support Tiran and Cameron:

1.) $125K: Immediate family and medical expenses
Support for out of pocket travel expenses for the immediate and extended family who are traveling in to support Ti and Cam during what will be an extremely long road to recovery for Ti
2.) $50K: Recovery and rehabilitation for Ti
To fill in any gaps on immediate or long term healthcare costs that insurance may not cover.

Thank you all for all of your support during this very trying time.
