7-year-old jax's wish for a kayaking adventure

October 21, 2022

In October 2021, 7-year-old Jackson "Jax" Ramirez was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder called IPEX. A rare life-threatening disease that threatens Jax's ability to have a normal childhood.

Ever since 2020, Jax's family has stayed isolated and and kept their distance from almost everyone. Going on hikes and hitting trails has been a highlight for Jax.

Jax's wish for two tandem kayaks was granted through car donations like yours.

On Wednesday morning of June 8, 2022, Jax was given two tandem kayaks through Make-A-Wish Greater Pennsylvania & West Virginia. Kayaking is one of Jax's favorite activities, it's one of the ways he can spend time outdoors and away from other people.

Jax is currently still looking for a bone marrow donor to be able to be in public around groups of people and live a normal childhood. These kayaks give Jax the chance to create a lifetime of good memories with his family, all thanks for generous donors and car donors like you.
