JJ promoted the “The Jarrius JJ Robertson Fund” – a fund dedicated to providing families of pediatric liver transplant patients with financial assistance for unexpected expenses.
With more than 17,000 patients nationwide on the liver waiting list, only 6,000 transplants are performed each year, leaving children at a disadvantage due to the shortage of small pediatric donors. One organ donor has the potential to save up to nine lives. They might also be able to restore sight to two people through tissue donation. If they are able to donate tissue, one donor has the potential to improve the lives of another 50 – 75 people.
