Hi, I'm Jackson!

When I was 10, I was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor. One day, when I was coming out of yet another MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan, I saw a little boy on his way in. He looked so scared and I wished there was something I could do to help. His parents looked really worried too. That's how this children's book was born. I hope it helps lots of kids to see that if I can do it, they can too! And I hope child life specialists can use my story to help other kids the way they have helped me!

In 1973, the ABTA was founded by two mothers determined to find answers that, at the time, were not yet available. Since then, the ABTA has funded more than $30 million in brain tumor research.
