Jett Foundation Gifts 6 Accessible Vans in 6 Months to Duchenne Families Across America

Jett Foundation's direct service program, Jett Giving Fund, has gifted a record breaking:

6 vans in 6 months (and two stairlifts!)

Medical and accessibility equipment can be expensive, and sometimes it isn't fully covered by insurance. Jett Giving Fund is a matching gift program that helps families affected by Duchenne who are struggling to afford vital equipment such as handicap accessible vehicles, stairlifts, scooters, and rotating beds.

Families fundraise half of the cost of the item they need and Jett Giving Fund matches the rest of the cost through generous donors.

Jett Giving Fund's success this year means so much more to these families than receiving an accessible vehicle. This gift means gaining the freedom and independence to go to the doctor's office, movie theater, grocery store, school or a friend's house much more easily than before. 
 

See the impact.


"Everything involved has taken a toll on my family emotionally, physically and most of all financially. I am so proud of Ethan. He smiles more and is less depressed. He loves to go to his events as a goodwill ambassador and the only way I can continue to do this for him is by purchasing a handicap accessible van."
- Sandra Katzin
Tears of joy for Ethan (and many others) on the day he receives a new handicap accessible vehicle thanks to Jett Giving Fund!

Most recently, families in Texas and Pennsylvania have received their accessible vans. 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.


“Empowering families with the necessary accessibility equipment they need for independence.”
