Does the family have someone that is going to build a ramp for them? If not I will call everyone I know to get one built, to make it a little bit easier on everyone. I am so happy he is making progress everyday.

Hey, Amanda. The family has signed a contract with a company to build the ramp. A generous man contacted Patch this morning wanting to help donate a ramp. The family was appreciative of the offer, but said they had already signed a contract with another company. The family is looking for guidance and/or donations to help reconstruct a storage room into a handicap-accessible bathroom. Thanks for your kind offer, Amanda, and to everyone else who has reached out to help the family during these trying times.

This just breaks my heart, no child should go through anything like that, nor should a parent =[ however, I am very glad to see the amazing progress Jacob's been making and I know he will get through this, God Bless you.
