Jon was recently granted a dream from the Sunshine Foundation for a Heated Medical Massage Chair. Sunshine Foundation answers dreams to children with life-long chronic conditions such as: spina bifida, cerebral palsy, severe low functioning autism, Down syndrome, hydrocephalus, severe epilepsy, Sickle Cell Disease, blindness, deafness, and many others. Jon lives with the challenges of Cerebral Palsy. Sunshine Foundation provides a Dream Come True for children that may be turned away from other wish-granting organizations that require a life-threatening or critical diagnosis.
“Thank you very much for this opportunity to get our son, Jon, a heated message chair. Jon has had such a difficult time during Covid with medical decline. This heated message chair brings comfort and joy to his aching body. This is truly a miracle at this stage of his life.” -Jon’s dad
