Only 8 days left, 10 more to go.. Let's show Panther power and get this done!!


When I started to write this post, there were 10 days left, and 14 more shirts to sell. We have since sold four more shirt to bring the total as of this time to ten shirts sold. First, I do want to thank each and everyone who bought a shirt, one person bought two shirts. I won't say his name, but I want to send a special thank you to W.M. Who not only bought two shirts, but also posted a message on his Facebook page to help get out the word, he also did one other thing I won't mention as I'm not sure if he would want me to say publicly. But I Thank You so much W.M and everyone else who bought a tee-shirt to help a little boy who never hurt anyone. 2nd. I received two letters from two people, each with a check for $100. I want to thank them from the bottom of my heart. I won't say there full name as I don't know if they would want me to, but there first names are William, and Jamie. Both are amazing people and have amazing spouses who did not mind them helping a little boy. Now in my first post I was generalizing the condition of Jackson to, well protect his medical privacy, and because I am a very proud father. I have never set out to ask anyone for money for any reason, because I was brought up to fend for myself, to take care of my family. I have done that to the best of my ability. I have made sure my son has the medical care, and equipment he needs to survive this horrible disease. Now there is, at this time, no cure or treatment for SMA, but I believe God is the ultimate healer, and he will guide the hands of those who are working on a cure/treatment to, I believe, bring one about soon I pray. Until that day comes, my wife and I work hard to keep him healthy, and happy. I believe God let me be the father of Jackson for a reason. And I have taken that responsibility to heart. I am also so grateful God choose me to be his father. My wife and I have done our best to make sure he is the happiest boy possible. And he is so very happy! He will brighten your day with his angelic smile. His personality will captivate you and hold your heart hostage forever. His laughter will make you do things for him just to be able to hear that amazing laugh that comes from his little body. So I truly believe we have done a good job, with Gods help, to make his life as happy as possible. So that brings me to the point of why I am now, even though I have never asked for anyone's help before, why I have decided to ask now. When you see your child who brings so much joy into yours and so many others life's, cry because this merciless disease attacks yet another part of his body, his spine, and binds it and curves it to the point where sitting in a car seat brings so much pain that you have to take a chance and hold him in your lap to get him home from his medical visits, it's too much to handle. Esp when you have a car seat made for him, yet can not use it because you have a SUV that's too small for it to fit in. I have tried on my own to get a van to put this seat in, but with the cost of his equipment, care, and the unforeseen cost of having to bury my oldest son Joshua, I just don't have the money to do it on my own. So I have decided to ask for peoples help out there. But I also have the problem of not knowing to many people. My wife and I have no social life to speak of. For instance, we got our nurse who comes a few days a week during the day to help Jackson, to come last Saturday at 4pm so I could take my wife to dinner. That was the first time in five years we have been out together, and all we did was worry about him while we were out. So you see, taking care of our son is number one in our lives, only God comes before him. So for that reason making friends is a very hard thing to do, that's why I called CSR my family, because I laugh at some of you guys on here, get mad at some of you on here at the things said, but all in all, it's like a family. Even though you may never know you made me laugh, or got me mad, you have been a so called family to me! A crazy family, but a family none the less. That too is why I chose to come on here and ask for your help. So those are my reasons, and I tried to be a little more insightful about the little boy you will be helping. So please, if you can, buy a shirt, or make a donation at www.booster.com/littlejackson If you can not buy a shirt, or make a donation, please help me to get the word out there by sharing this on your Facebook pages and/or any other media outlets you feel might help. We have just a few days left to go, and so much to do to reach the 100 shirts sold goal, but also a lot to do just to reach the min of 20 shirts needed to sell for the company of booster. Thank you for your help, and may God bless you all. Jimmy Powell
