Jake Wrenn and Help Hope Live
As a result, Jake is a level C4 – C6 quadriplegic with no use of his legs and limited use of his arms. Jake's journey toward rehabilitation has just begun.
Jake Wrenn is a resident of Granville, CT and 22 year old student at Penn College of Technology (a division of Penn State). He has plans of becoming a manufacturing engineer.
We are supporting Jake and his family in his transition back to to his athletic lifestyle as they help him get back involved in adaptive sports. The family is working to get him an electric wheelchair and will be completing some modifications to thier home. They have just purchased a modified vehicle for him. All of these efforts to increase Jake's independence are expensive and not covered by insurance.
To help offset such expenses, a fundraising campaign in Jake's honor has been established with HelpHOPELive, a nonprofit organization that has been assisting the transplant community for 30 years. In 2000, they expanded their mission to include those who have sustained a catastrophic injury. All contributions are tax-deductible, are held by HelpHOPELive in the Northeast Spinal Cord Injury Fund, and are administered by HelpHOPELive for injury-related expenses only.
We support Jake and his family.
