Families Who We Have Helped


Thanks to all of our supporters, Cal can take a dip in his pool safely!

“Cals inaugural use of his pool lift!! He is soooo happy to finally be able to safely get in our pool! Many thanks to @4 Jake’s Sake for this amazing gift!!” Mom Cindy


Just look at Eli’s wide grin because he can get into his pool!!! Seeing faces like this is exactly why we do what we do, and we would not be able to do it without all of you! Eli lives in TX with his Mom and Dad, and it was getting hard to get him in and out of the pool. We worked with Next Day Access in Dallas and had this lift installed…he seems pretty happy about it!  REQ Rehabilitation Equipment Associates, INC had a huge hand in this one!

The Hay Family

Say Hi to the Hay Family! They reached out to us for help with a van that they needed so Liam & Kellan could maintain their independence of getting in and out of their vehicle. Thanks to our donors we could provide a grant to help them get their new wheels! Can’t wait to hear all about the adventures they will be able to take now! Here is what Mom Heather had to say…

“Big things are going to happen in this Honda Odyssey 🙌
To make things easier for Liam and Kellan, we purchased a minivan today. I knew we had made the right decision when Kellan asked, “Why is it so easy to get in?” That is the reason right there! They will hopefully be able to gain and maintain the independence of getting in and out of a car on their own for a long time to come. HUGE shout out to 4 Jake’s Sake. Their financial contribution made this happen ” Heather Hay


Say Hi to Ethan!! Ethan is a creative 14 year old from Pennsylvania who loves to draw! Ethan has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. When he grows up he wants to move to Florida and be a Marine Biologist.  Because of our supporters we were able to get Ethan a ramp so he can bring his scooter into his home and not have to leave it in the basement! This is just one of the many families have helped with the amazing support of our donors! 


Meet Liam!  He is a true Red Sox Fan and this was the first day the Green Monster came home from school and was able to get into his home!!!!!

“Thank you 4Jake’s sake for the Ramp a new beginning for Liam with the independence he needs.” from Liam’s Mom


C.J. is so happy to get a “lift” upstairs in his home!  For this job we partenered with 101 Mobility in Marlboro, MA (who did Jake’s elevator) as they donated the labor to get this chair lift installed so C.J. can make it upstairs to the bathroom and his bedroom!


“Thank you! Max finally has access to the man cave.”  From Max’s Mom


Miguel can now join the rest of his family when they hit the road thanks to the ramp that enables his wheelchair to get into the van.


Emerson can now get in and take a cruise!  We helped with the mechanism that connects his wheel chair safely into his truck.

Sammy & Caeden

Most Duchenne kids need a 1 on 1 when they go to summer camp and Sammy (left) and Caeden were so happy to spend a week at the Bridge Center and looks like the had Christmas in July!  Caeden was also able to do some equine therapy his week!


Before the ramp Isaiah could only get his wheelchair into the house with a long piece of plywood, now he can just roll on home after a tough day in the 3rd grade!  This 9 year old loves having this independence!
