Jett Corson, who suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, is an inspiration to most people. His optimism and hard work was recognised six months ago, with the gift of a pool donated and specially built with the support of the community. Today, the community support continues for Jett with a further donation from Australia’s largest supplier of pool covers and rollers, Daisy Pool Covers & Rollers and national pool retailer Clark Rubber.
Jett’s mother Susan Anderson said “having the pool accessible at home has enabled Jett to do his hydrotherapy exercises over the last six months more easily. The special ramp has meant that he can get in and out of the pool himself which gives him both motivation and independence.”
“He’s been in the pool at least four to five times a week, even when it rains because it’s heated” she said. “It has really made a difference with his general mobility, weight stability and loosening his stiff and sore muscles”.
Realising the benefits of pool covers in helping to keep the heat in and save on heating costs, Jett’s parents welcomed the new pool cover and roller from Daisy.
“It will make an incredible difference and will lessen the expense of running the heater and chemicals needed to keep the pool in check, as well as help with water evaporation.” Susan said. “We’re so thankful and humbled by the generosity of Daisy and Clark Rubber getting involved and offering their support.”
Daisy Managing Director Derek Prince said Daisy was honoured to be involved.
“We wanted to help Jett and the donation of a Daisy Pool Cover will help keep the pool at optimum temperatures and minimise the family’s expenses and time” Derek said.
Clark Rubber Virginia Manager Michael Young also donated his time to install the Daisy Pool Cover and Roller.
