"We would like to extend the biggest MAHALO to all of you at the Jett Foundation for making this happen for our son. We will forever be grateful to you and appreciate all that the Jett Foundation is doing for our Duchenne community." 


Kiska Apa, Sevastyan’s mom.

Jett Foundation is delighted to announce our second Jett Giving Success story! Earlier this week, we gifted 7-year-old Sevastyan Apa a stair lift for his home in Kapolei, Hawaii. This stair lift will help Sevastyan, who is having difficulty climbing stairs, access the upper floors of his home and remain as independent as possible. 

The Jett Giving Fund is a matching gift program that helps families affected by Duchenne who are struggling to afford special equipment such as handicap accessible vehicles, scooters, and rotating beds.

After the Apa family, with the help of their local community, raised half the cost of the stair lift for the Jett Giving Fund, Jett Foundation matched those funds and gifted the stair lift to Sevastyan and his family

Jett Foundation could not provide this one-of-a-kind program to the Duchenne community without the help of our generous partners, Two Smiles One Hope and Suneel's Light Foundation. Thank you for your generous partnership.
