About Jack

Hi, I’m Jack!

I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when I was 5. It doesn’t stop me from playing basketball, volunteering with Challenger Baseball as a buddy, or hanging out with my big sister Alexandra, but if I don’t get enough insulin I could get really sick.

Over the last few years, the people on my Team Jack of Hearts have raised more than $160,000 for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). Scientists are working hard to find a cure, I am sure of it!

With your help, we raised $42,000 at the 2016 Telus Walk to Cure Diabetes! Let’s surpass this year’s goal too.

Join me! Thank you from me, and all the other kids who go through what I go through.

This YouTube video might tell you a bit more about my journey. Hope you enjoy it!
