Donate Now

Help Jackson meet other kids just like him:

Emanuel's syndrome is very rare. My Jackson is about 1 of 200 in the world. We are having a "family" reunion in Dallas the last weekend of June. Many of these families live far away and travel is expensive. The day to day living expense for a child with special needs is high, and vacations are sometimes rare. Imagine never having met another family who has been through the same things you have. Imagine never having seen another child in person with the same disorder. I can't describe such a thing accurately. It would mean the world to us, to all the families to get a weekend of feeling "normal". I have set up this donation button to help other families with traveling expenses, and hopefully be able to provide catered food so they are not worried about that expense. Below is an itemized list of requests I have received for money. Any amount would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for all you do to support our journey.
With Love,
