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

Blog comments Your Say

  • Having read this I believed it was very enlightening. I appreciate
    you taking the time and effort to put this short article together.
    I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and commenting.

    But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  • I've been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

  • 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?
