London, February 21 (ANI): John Travolta and Kelly Preston have set up a charity foundation in memory of their late son.

The heartbroken couple had bade their 16-year-old Jett a final goodbye after the teenager died from a seizure during a family holiday in the Bahamas on January 2.

Jett, who began suffering from seizures at the age of two, had Kawasaki Syndrome, a rare condition that can lead to heart disease.

And now, the pair is determined to help other kids suffering from diseases with The Jett Travolta Foundation, reports the Daily Express.

A statement on their website said: “The Foundation shall endeavour to use its resources specifically to assist and provide relief to children with vision, hearing, mobility, communication, behavioural learning impairments or other special medical, environmental, health or education needs.” (ANI)
