Jackson’s life was cut tragically short at the age of 7. He was diagnosed on a Sunday with a 9” tumor in his femur and a flap on his mitral valve. He endured 6 strokes within a matter of 6 days and then ultimately the strokes took his life.

Jackson’s mother was already a long-time St. Baldrick's supporter. She had been involved with St. Baldrick's since 2015. In March 2019 he chose to join her and shave in solidarity with children battling cancer. He single-handedly raised $1200 in one night. Little did anyone know that he likely had cancer at the time of his shave.

Jackson’s life and death had a major impact on so many people. His story has been told worldwide and now his family family is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for childhood cancer research. He made a bucket list and said that he wanted to become a legend. Sadly, this became a reality because of cancer. 
His family doesn’t want anyone to have to endure the horrendous loss like this. They want to make a real impact. With your donations, this will happen! They thank you from the bottom of their broken hearts.
