A father's fight

Posted by: 6PR | 5 September, 2012 - 5:25 PM
Jackson has been through excruciating physical therapy but Dave says he wakes up smiling every morning.

Two-year-old Jackson has Cereberal Palsy. Doctors said he would never walk. His dad Dave refused to give up on him and Jackson has taken his first steps. Howard Sattler spoke to Dave and also Tim Noonan from Sunday Night who brought us Dave's story.

Jackson's medical bills are in the tens of thousands of dollars and will have cracked the million dollar mark by the time he is 18.

If you would like to donate to Dave and Jackson Keleher go to www.walktalkfly.com

  • Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
    Any tips?
