Since Paramedic Jamie Jackway’s tragic Rescue Helicopter Accident, his family, friends and regional work colleagues in Townsville, rallied behind him and continue to do so. They have done a most remarkable job to raise much needed support for Jamie and his Family. They have started something very special to meet Jamie’s life-long needs as a quadriplegic, AND they are without doubt, the true founders of all future appeals including this new appeal.
