Health insurance often won’t cover all specialized medical and accessibility equipment such as scooters, shower chairs, ramps, rotational beds and accessible vans; items needed when suffering from a progressive muscle-wasting disorder. Without these necessities, those with Duchenne struggle to participate in the kinds of activities that most people take for granted, such as getting to and from school, or going to the mall with friends.
Jett Foundation launched the Jett Giving Fund in 2017 to help meet the growing need in the Duchenne community. Through the generosity of individuals, corporate and foundation supporters, we provided six vans, one van conversion, one rotating bed, two stairlifts, and one scooter in 2017.
Our 2017 application process is now closed. Applications will be available again in Summer 2018.
