Please help this family!

There is a little cutie pie named Jakob who was born in Hinton, Alberta, Canada where I grew up. He was born in 2009 with a very rare disorder [Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita]. He owns over 16 sets of casts, and has had over 8 major surgeries so far (Four of those being in the first four months of his life).

This disorder has caused him to have almost NO movement to his limbs and has to do therapy everyday. He has learned to do things in his own unique way, he was told that he would never be able to walk or eat by himself, but he slowly proving that wrong. He is the second youngest age of an AMC child to ever walk at 19 months.

Please watch this video, it shows the progress, and his own unique ways of doing things that most children have no problem doing.


Living in such a small town, there is not a whole lot of information on this disorder.

This beautiful family have an opportunity to learn more about this disorder in July at a convention in Kansas City, MO. This convention is geared towards parents with children with AMC, it also provides families with support and to help children with AMC reach their highest potential through the education of their parents. Jakobs mom is a single mommy who stays by his side to help him, but financially they can not afford this $3500 trip without the support of kind hearted people like you.

Just $10 from 350 people, would make this dream come true.
So please spread the word, and this video, because it is very touching and this boy is just beautiful!

Please make any donation you can to Royal Bank Hinton, AB.
