Acute Flaccid Myelitis (AFM) is a rare but serious illness that has recently been referred to as a “polio-like illness,” affecting the body’s nervous system and often leading to paralysis. Jackson is one of five confirmed cases of AFM in Pittsburgh. While Jackson’s prognosis is not yet known, it is certain that he has a long recovery ahead of him. He has virtually no mobility below his neck, and requires assistance to breathe and eat. He works daily with physical, occupational, and speech therapists to regain the most basic motor functions of a two-year-old.

CHIP is short for the Children's Health Insurance Program - Pennsylvania's program to provide health insurance to uninsured children and teens who are not eligible for or enrolled in Medical Assistance.
