Jett Foundation is delighted to announce our second Jett Giving Success story! Earlier this week, we gifted 12-year-old Aidan Braswell a stair lift for his home in Wylie, Texas. This van will help Aidan, who is in a power chair, safely travel to doctor's appointments, friends and family's houses, and to school, and it will help Aidan remain as independent as possible despite living with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
We’re excited to announce that Jett Foundation is collecting hugs - again, for kids born with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
Our mission is simple: Keep them hugging.
