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 have been able to provide 6 vans, and 2 stairlifts this year.
Due to the overwhelming interest in the Jett Giving Fund, we have included additional information on our page regarding the fundraising expectations of recipients.
