We fund research in Prader-Willi Syndrome to give hope for a brighter future


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

My 4 year old daughter Robyn, was born with a complex and challenging condition called Prader Willi Syndrome (PWS). PWS is a rare condition affecting approximately 1:15,000. We badly need more treatments for this condition so Robyn can live a full life.

During the month of July I will be taking part in a wilderness canoe expedition of the Sheenjek with my father, Rae Jack. It will just be the two of us (unguided) and we will spend approximately two and a half weeks on the river. There is every chance we won't see another soul during this time. I'm using this trip as an opportunity to raise awareness about PWS and money for a charity close to my heart. ALL donations will go to the Foundation for Prader Willi Research and not one penny will be used to fund my trip.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
