7-year-old jax's wish for a kayaking adventure
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.
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.
Make-A-Wish Greater Pennsylvania & West Virginia has granted over 400 wishes this year and plans to grant over 600 wishes. Your car donations to Wheels For Wishes help make wishes like Jax's happen.
