Just last weekend, Glenn read a story about a baby whose rare genetic disorder would stunt his growth and shorten his lifespan. His parents, avid travelers, would not be able to take their young son very many places, so they made a shirt with his image on it so people could bring him around the world and send word of their adventures. Jett would, in a way, be going with them on these trips. The shirts would also raise awareness of his disorder. Moved by the story, Glenn offered to promote their story and take over the sales of the shirt - returning all the money he made to the family - so he could reach his massive radio and GBTV audience.
Today, The Blaze reported: "Since he first talked about the Bosemans on GBTV Monday evening and began hosting the “Jett B.” T-shirt on 1791.com, sales have taken off. Less than a day after Glenn’s debut of the grey-blue shirt to the GBTV audience, about 1,000 T-shirts were sold, raising $20,000 for the family. At the time of this publication, more than 1,330 shirts have been purchased."
Glenn invited Jett and his father Jett to Dallas for the show in what would be one of the few trips Jett has been able to make. On the Boseman family blog, which is written from Jett's perspective, the Boseman's wrote:
I took a quick trip to Dallas Texas to meet my friend Glenn Beck. He was such an awesome guy, it was really really fun to hang out with him. [Mom and Dad] (M&D) were pretty worried about taking me in the airplane and traveling with me all day. They asked me to bring all of my angel friends along to help me. So Tuesday morning rolled around, I called all of my angels friends and we were on our way. I know that I had angels with me that day because I felt better than I ever have before. I was perfect the entire day. My ears didn’t hurt in the airplane, I didn’t choke very many times during the day, I only puked a few times, and M&D were able to make me smile.
Jett was diagnosed with Pontocerebellar hypoplasia, and Jett's mother explained "Jett has daily seizures, is on a feeding tube 20 hours a day and has a gag reflex that requires a machine to help him breath. He is watched 24/7 by his family and friends."
