Three-year-old Jackson contracted bacterial meningitis when he was 10 days old. He was in critical condition for 30 days in the NICU as he battled for his life. Because of these horrific bacteria, Jackson now lives with spastic quadriplegia cerebral palsy as well as epilepsy, both of which are controlled through medication. Fortunately, Jackson has always been a fighter. He is a happy, determined, loving little boy. He loves playing with his big sisters, Anna and Madelinn, playing with cars, playing sports, and reading. Jackson also loves being in the water and moving about in his walker. He is always smiling and has a delightful laugh.
