1. Kim nominated her son Matthew. Matthew is 22 years old
2. Jason nominated his son Jack. Jack is 8 years old.
Kim writes: “Matthew is 22 years old and since he outgrew the jeans with elastic waistbands, we have not been able to get a pair of jeans to fit…..Matthew has trouble working the button on typical jeans, so he has been wearing sweatpants that gather not only in the waist but at the ankles so they are not too long and so he is comfortable.
How would a pair of our jeans make a difference in his life? : A pair of jeans that fit Matthew, that is comfortable….as well as easy to manage would make him so very happy. Matthew would be able to wear his jeans and be just like everyone else, instead of having on his sweatpants. He would be able to dress up or dress down, depending on what it is that he is doing……and he would be able to not only wear them with ease…..but be fashionable. This would make him very, very happy Thank you!
Jason writes: “My son Jack is such a blessing. He teaches us every day to be thankful. We were told for 8 mths of pregnancy Jack had a tumor and would not survive to be born. The tumor disappeared and we were told he would have Down Syndrome….we were overjoyed! At age 3 Jack was diagnosed with very rare skin disease, Pityriasis Rubra Pilaris. His skin peels and bleeds and there is no cure. He cannot sweat or go in the sun so it is a must he always wears pants. He will be 8 years old in August and weighs 39 lbs. tall but skinny”.
How would a pair of our jeans make a difference in his life? “I lost my job a week ago and so that’s been stressful when I need to get school clothes. I have been praying every night because the one thing I struggle with every year is finding pants that pull on and that will be comfortable for our Jack. When I read this, it’s such a blessing what you’re doing for families. Thank you for your love and caring for all of our beautiful babies in the world”.
