His father, David Jarboe said things are looking good for his boy.
"Kosair's in Louisville explained he would never walk," said Jarboe. "Kosairs in Lexington told us he would, but at three years old and he is already walking at two."
The boy's condition was generated from laying incorrectly in his mother's womb. Jarboe's father said his son's feet were so far inward they were touching each other, instead of the normal pointing forward.
This type of defect occurs in about one to two per 1,000 live births. About 50% of cases are bilateral and it occurs more in men than females.
Jeremiah will have to wear two casts after the surgery in June. He will have to be taken back and forth to his doctor once a week for six weeks.
David Jarboe said someone has to be with his son 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. His wife stays at home to take care of Jeremiah.
Jarboe and his wife also have an 18-month-child and a six-year-old also, so he has had to cut back working so he can help out with all the children.
The family has decided to have a junk drive to raise money for the expensive surgery and trips back and forth to Lexington.
They urge anyone who has metal, farm equipment, old batteries, or older items in general to drop it off at Zachary's Auto Salvage on Bloomington Road.
Deadlines for submitting materials is June 8th. The Jarboe wants to thank everyone in Grayson County who has helped out during the past two surgeries thus far.
Some notable figures who have also suffered from the disease are comedian Damon Wayans, actor Dudley Moore, and soccer star Mia Hamm.
