- Jackson -
In many ways, Jackson is a typical ten-year-old boy who loves elephants and trains. But in other ways, he is anything but typical. He was born with Down syndrome, and he's also a cancer survivor. In 2010, when Jackson was just a toddler, he was diagnosed with leukemia. The diagnosis seemed insurmountable. He spent more than 150 long nights in the hospital, but his spirit and will to live is relentless. Today, Jackson is very healthy and this year marks five years off chemo – a huge milestone.
