Family encourages others to support BC Children’s Hospital
Jack Seber was about to turn eight years old when he was diagnosed with a debilitating kidney disease.
It was a difficult day for the young man from French Creek and his family, as it led to an unexpected and challenging year-long journey that started at Oceanside Health Care Centre when he first fell ill.
His parents were advised to take him to Nanaimo Regional General Hospital for further tests. Following that, Jack was transported by ambulance to Victoria General Hospital where he spent 19 days under intensive care. He was diagnosed with stage 3 kidney disease and was transferred to BC Children’s Hospital, where he had to undergo a major surgical procedure.
His dad, Adam Seber, said it has been a tough experience for his son, who is now nine, but it has not completely dampened his spirits and hopes. He has accepted his health condition and is determined to fight.
