Jack isn't letting his condition get in the way.

On Sunday, he and his family are took a trip to the Florida Keys - where Jack will get a chance to swim with dolphins. All thanks to supporters like make a wish foundation.

Jack suffers from a life-threatening medical condition that requires him to stay out of the sunlight (UVA and UVB rays).

With the help of Pilot Flying J Corporation he will be given one on one attention during his flight in their Learjet aircraft so that he and his family can limit the amount of sun coming into the plane, and not have to worry about so many people on a large flight with Jack's fragile immune system. TAC Air will provide jet fuel for the trip, as well as the return leg.
