Turtle Wing wants to help all children sprout wings and fly academically and socially, allowing them to become the best they can be. Turtles symbolize wisdom and everlasting life. A perfect depiction of Jack Hooper!
Jack was born on May 15th, 2001 to Chris and DeeAnn (Fike) Hooper. And on April 5th 2011, Jack died suddenly of “a viral-like syndrome of unknown etiology”. At age 6, Jack was diagnosed with high-functioning Autism. After getting a diagnosis, life can become a constant search for answers every single day coupled with expensive therapy. Turtle Wing was founded to to help families, not only families affected by Autism, all families to have access to the limited resources.
