Eliot Jace Jackson was born June 10th, 2011. Unbeknownst to his parents, he had hydrocephalus, a life-long brain condition that effects an estimated one to two out of every 1,000 people worldwide. Soon after Eliot was born, his parents heard about the work CURE International is doing in Uganda to treat children with hydrocephalus. Their hearts broke at the realization that parents just like them in the developing world lose their children to hydrocephalus at alarming rates.
In December of 2011, the Jackson family started a donation page for CURE Hydrocephalus with the goal of funding five brain surgeries by Eliot’s first birthday. In May 2012, The Asher Foundation, also a supporter of CURE Hydrocephalus, came alongside the Jacksons and launched a line of bracelets to help raise money for Eliot’s fundraiser.
This new line by Asher Bracelets is called Eliot’s First Birthday. It is made up of three different bracelets, Eliot, Nashville and The Jackson 6. The sale of these bracelets benefit CURE Uganda by going into Eliot’s fundraiser to pay for the five surgeries. The bracelets can be purchased at the Asher Foundation website: http://theasherfoundation.
