Two weeks ago, Jack Massey’s life changed after a pool accident paralyzed him from the chest down

He was sent immediately to SHANDS at UF then transferred to Shepherds Rehabilitation Center in Atlanta on March 24th. That same day Julie Massey began a GoFundMe campaign for the expenses their insurance didn’t cover and within 3 days they raised $17,955. Jack Massey still has a lot of physical therapy ahead of him, but he’s already had surgery and regained some control of his arms.
