Kole Jackson, 17, has dealt with a myriad of pain and health issues since he suffered two concussions minutes apart while at a football practice when he was 10 years old. Jackson and his family have worked for years to get him the right kind of treatment. Now, they are hoping to find help at a 12-week treatment program at the Spero Clinic in Arkansas. Due to a program cost of about $3,000 per week, they need the community’s help to continue Jackson’s journey forward.
