Help Jasmaine get an Obi Robot!

$4,650 of $4,500 goal

Raised by 51 people in 27 months
In May of last year, our family had the opportunity to test out a small robotic companion, Obi, with the goal of delivering dining independence and dignity to our daughter, Jasmine. Jazz was born 29 weeks premature and during delivery, suffered a cranial bleed which resulted in Spastic Cerebral Palsy. The severity of her condition requires 24-hour supervision and assisted care as she is wheelchair bound and cannot do most everyday tasks that we take for granted. Since I can remember, Jazz has always strived to be as independent and lively as her younger sister, Alexis who is 2 years younger. Therefore, at every chance she can, she embraces any opportunity to do things on her own. When Obi came into our house, Jazz welcomed it with open arms and ate every meal with it for the 2-week period. For the first time, Jazz was able to eat with the family rather than before or after. With Obi, Jazz not only enjoyed eating, but she actually ate more food in general.


We are asking you to be part of delivering this dignified dining experience to our beautiful daughter. Your donations will go towards purchasing an Obi device for Jazz.

Please help our family bring Obi into our homes giving our daughter the confidence and independence to eat with her family and school mates.  We are forever grateful for your hospitality.

Thank You,

Jazz & Family

For those who have yet to see Obi what is or does, here is a link to their video:

To God Be the Glory!

The family of Jasmaine (Jazz) Nelson would like to thank our family and friends for supporting us in the purchase of Obi, Jazz’s new robotic dining companion. Words cannot express the gratitude and the joy we feel. Without your caring spirit, generosity, and love the campaign would not have been a success. As we move forward, look for a video of Jazz using her Obi so you can see what your donations have purchased. Again, we thank you all for making a dream come true for our daughter.
