Jackson's 9th Annual Mulligan on Life Golf Outing
Time & Place
10:00 AM - 8:00 PM
Brooklake Country Club, 139 Brooklake Road, Florham Park, NJ 07932
A Mulligan on the golf course is very common...
A Mulligan on life is very rare...
Jackson, now 11 years old, was born with a rare liver disease, Biliary Atresia. His life consisted of countless visits to doctors and hospitals for blood tests, transfusions and various other procedures. His condition eventually worsened to a critical stage and he was admitted to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia December of 2003. The prayers of family and friends were answered weeks later when Jack received a new liver from an enlightened, caring family whose one-year-old child had died. Unfortunately, a blood clot damaged Jackson's new liver, and another transplant was required.
Now the good news: Jack's second "Angel" appeared, giving him yet another chance. It is now more than nine years later and Jackson is enjoying a normal life. Jackson and his parents owe the donors and their families a debt of gratitude, as do all of us who witnessed his transformation into a happy and healthy child. Jackson's infectious laugh and devilish smile now light up any room and remind us all that we have witnessed the ultimate gift anyone can give another - The miracle of Life! "We make a living by what we get...We make a life by what we give."
Join us for Jackson's 9th Annual Mulligan on Life Golf Outing to raise funds for Gift of Life Family House.
