Christmas Comes Early for Jax Dorward with Surprise Delivery of a Custom Wheel Chair

Community Rallies to Support Beloved Edmonton Youth to Enhance his Independence

Edmonton, AB – Jax Dorward became beloved to many Edmontonians when his story about his time at The Stollery Children’s hospital was featured on television. Jax has become a recognizable face in the community and has been seen helping at various Stollery fundraisers, and supporting other causes where he can. His remarkable story of perseverance and positivity has touched thousands of people, and several organizations have now teamed up to thank Jax for all he does.

To those who know Jax, they know that he gives back to the community, and thanks to the generosity of some local businesses, Jax is going to get a Christmas gift that will truly help to change his life.

Media are invited to help share this next chapter for Jax and join ProStar Well Services, Alair Homes, Fire4Hire Jet Cars and the Dorward family in surprising Jax with a custom designed and built racecar wheelchair that will aid his mobility and enhance his independence.
