Brave Me Kid of the Week

February 26th - March 4th, 2020


Jackson is calm, cool and collected and anyone who is lucky enough to meet him can tell almost instantly what a great kid he is. Whatever he may face dealing with the literal ups and downs of T1D, he knows that life is about enjoying time with friends and family, playing sports (even just wrestling with his buddy in the pool) and finding ways to give the brain a break from stress. Though we here at Brave Me may prefer lions, the fact that Jackson’s favorite animal is the wolf really makes sense. Like them he is extremely intelligent, highly social and loyal to the pack, which in his case is his awesome family!

"I love playing soccer and have played goalkeeper and forward. My goal is to be a professional soccer player in the future. I love football too and I root for the New England Patriots. I really like to go fishing, especially if I can catch snook, snapper and dorado. Christmas is my favorite holiday because I get to see my Aunt from Chicago and my Uncle from San Diego! Being together with the whole family is what makes it the best."
