Jack's Story:

On March 1, 2018 prior to the red alert for Storm Emma, Jack was out in the snow with friends in Mayfield. An awkward fall resulted in Jack fracturing his C5 vertebrate in his neck. This left Jack paralysed from the chest down.

Jack was brought to Cork University Hospital immediately after the accident, however the severity of his injury required him to be transferred to the Dublin to undergo surgery in the Mater Hospital. He is currently in the hospitals High Dependency Unit (HDU), where he is receiving first class care from the teams of doctors, nurses and other medical professionals. This is the first tentative stage in a long road to recovery for Jack.

Through all of this Jack has remained positive, upbeat and determined. Based on Jack’s outlook, his friends and family are hopeful that his progress will continue and allow him to begin the next stage of his rehabilitation at the National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH) in Dún Laoghaire.

Since the accident Jack’s family have been overwhelmed by goodwill and support. Therefore, members of Jack's friends and family have established this funding page with the goal of raising the necessary funds for the dedicated support and treatment he will require.

We feel we owe it to Jack to approach this aspect of his recovery with the same determination he has shown in the early stages of his rehabilitation.
