Jack's story

Kids Helping Kids: Meet Jack

Nine-year-old Jack Gendron and his family have been organizing an annual family snowmobile ride in Maine for years. They’ve also been battling Jack’s OCD.

After graduating from Bradley Hospital’s Intensive Program for OCD last summer, Jack knew he wanted to do something to express how grateful he was for the care he received.
