Inspired by Jack’s passion for animals and his beloved ghosty, Jack’s Zoo was designed to stand out.
Jack’s socks are made right here in North Carolina from a blend of polyester and nylon. They’re soft to the touch and a bit thicker than the average dress sock, sitting just below the calf at crew length. Proceeds from the sales of Jack’s Zoo go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and Resilience Patient Project.
Dan and Lesli Creedon adopted their children, Jack and Catherine, from an orphanage in Siberia. Though Jack and Catherine were born 12 days apart, the pair has been inseparable since coming home to the United States. The two grew up holding hands through their cribs and, now 12 years old, spend as much time together as they can.
In the fall of 2015 bruises began appearing on Jack’s body. Within a week and a half the diagnosis came in - AL Leukemia. He began treatment the day after Lesli received the call. Due to Jack’s treatment at Duke University Hospital, Catherine is only able to see him every other weekend when she and Dan make the five-hour drive from their home outside Washington, D.C.
Because the the Creedons’ insurance has covered the cost of Jack’s care, half of net proceeds from sales of Jack’s Zoo will benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and Resilience Patient Project. The Creedons have been raising awareness and funds for LLS ever since Jack’s diagnosis, working toward a cure and making sure others with similar diagnoses can afford care.
Featured side by side with some of Jack and Catherine’s favorite animals is Ghostie, a bow tie-wearing stuffed ghost that has been a constant through Jack’s time in treatment. Despite disappearing for about one week around the time of Jack’s stem cell transplant, the doctors at Duke presented Ghostie to Jack, revealing that Ghostie had undergone transplant as well!
