Jason Benetti's Bio: Family, Eye Surgery
Jason Benetti was born ten weeks prematurely to his parents, Rob Benetti and Sue Benetti in 1983. He was diagnosed with lung disorder and depended on oxygen machines soon after his birth.
So, Rob and Sue thought that they might not be able to take their son home.

Also, 40 days before he was born, his father, Rob was caught in an accident that left him injured and disabled for three and a half years of his life.
These two reasons became a changing factor in their life as a family.
After baby Jason spent three months at the University of Chicago Hospital, he was discharged. But, the doctors warned the couple that Jason might be developmentally disabled.
Rob and Jason spent their time together at home after coming out of the hospital. Later, Jason was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, a neurological disorder that affects muscle coordination, movement, and balance.
