WHO BENEFITS?

The Paul Jackson Fund assists individuals and families who are facing a financial crisis due to a long - term illness or disability.

In 1989, Paul Jackson, at age 28, underwent surgery to remove a tumor from his spinal cord. Paul, a life-long athlete, was left paralyzed. When the insurance company would not cover his rehabilitation program, family and friends along with community members rallied together to raise money for Paul. And with that, The Paul Jackson Fund was born.

After Paul no longer needed the help of The Fund - he took charge and began assisting others. He created a charity of last resort A safety net for people whose needs had become so dire they had nowhere else to turn.

After a courageous battle with cancer, Paul passed away in February of 2009. His only wish was for The Fund to continue. With your help, Paul's mission will endure.
