    Jackson Finds His Strength Again

    Jackson plays varsity football and grew up playing basketball, ice hockey, baseball and lacrosse. He began having seizures at age 9 and lost the ability to talk, walk and eat on his own. Neurologists and speech and physical therapists at Children's National helped him recover from his rare illness and keep chasing his athletic dreams.
