Jack’s Helping Hand, Inc., a non-profit charitable organization, was created in honor of Paul and Bridget Ready’s youngest son Jack, who passed away in 2004 at the age of 3 from a rare form of brain cancer. Now in its sixth year of service, Jack’s Helping Hand assists children with illnesses and disabilities, providing special treatments, services, equipment and transportation not provided by other sources, or that exceed family financial capabilities.
