Our 2018 Jett Giving Fund Film

Jett Foundation established the Jett Giving Fund to assist families affected by Duchenne muscular dystrophy in purchasing unaffordable, but vital medical and accessibility equipment.

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.

We had been praying for a way to afford a converted van with a ramp so that we can easily roll Ryan in and lessen the amount of lifting we do everyday. We are blessed by the Jett Giving Fund which has come along side us to help fundraise and match all funds that we raise towards getting an accessible van for our son.
