|NEW VACCINE THERAPY
On June 3, Jack became the fifth patient enrolled in the ATOMIC vaccine trial at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston. He received his first injection with a smile and a hope that this would be the treatment to help him successfully win his fight against cancer.
Just one year ago this trial did not exist and was only made possible with a donation from our friends at Cookies For Kids' Cancer, a foundation like I Back Jack -- founded by parents, supported by generosity, and fueled by hope.
OUR HERO MEETS HIS HERO
Annie & Jack Bartosz and Aaron Rodgers
Both the Milwaukee Wave and the MACC Fund scored big when Packer quarterback Aaron Rodgers made his first post
Super Bowl appearance at the final regular season Wave game in March. Even better, our own JACK BARTOSZ was one of the lucky MACC Fund kids who was able to join Rodgers in the locker room and on the field.
Aaron not only signed Jack's #12 jersey but also presented him with a signed Super Bowl ticket that reads, "Jack, you are my MVP." Jack was excited to see his new friend again in May at the 'Evening with Aaron Rodgers' event when Aaron announced to the more than 750 gathered that the I Back Jack golf towel hanging on his golf bag brings him good luck.
