Our Foundation has been set up in memory of my son, Jack, who died on 14th December 2016 at the tender age of 10
after a long battle with Cystic Fibrosis. Jack was a true hero who melted the hearts of anyone who had the pleasure
of meeting him and fundraised for others with a passion. We are now committed to keeping his memory alive by supporting
other children and their families.
Jack was never an ordinary boy. He was always special.
Jack was born on 2nd September 2006 and diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis a short time later. At age 4, Jack contracted a bacteria in his lungs. This bacteria was called Non-TB Mycobacterium Abscesses (NTM), an extremely difficult condition to treat and resulted in Jack requiring a Double Lung transplant on November 8th 2015. Despite the operation going very well initially, this bacterial infection was found to be growing into his new lungs and he required intensive IV treatment.
On 23rd November 2016 Jacks health deteriorated significantly and was admitted into hospital. Despite all the efforts of medical professionals and his family Jack fell asleep in the arms of his Mother and Father by his side on 14th December 2016. Jack was 10 years of age.
