The Jawbone Family Gets UP Together

Earlier this year, our team at Jawbone had the privilege to share Get UP Together, a series of authentic success stories sourced directly from our UP® community.

First you met Brett, a former Silicon Valley adviser, who used his UP3™ band to track his recovery after a sudden bike accident four years ago. Next, we introduced you to Samantha, a mother of three who tracked and improved her sleep with her UP3™ band.

Flashback with me to January 29, a Friday afternoon at the Jawbone office in San Francisco. I’m chatting with Brett Bullington, a long-time Silicon Valley advisor and angel-investor.

“I was diagnosed with a congenital condition called Chiari Malformation at age 16.” says Jennifer Lake, an UP community member since 2014.

“For seven years, I was sick without any idea of why. And, it turned out that this Chiari Malformation had been the answer all along. Sometime throughout the seven years between diagnosis and treatment, I developed a secondary problem. My cranio-cervical junction had become unstable, allowing my second vertebrae to migrate upwards and backwards, compressing my brain stem. Essentially, my skull had begun to slip back and forth on my spine. The doctors sat me down and said, ‘You’re going to need brain surgery.”

“Progress—not perfection—is what I’m going for. I firmly believe that’s how I’ll meet my ultimate goals, with progress and little changes over time. The weight didn’t come on overnight, so it’s not like it’s going to fall off overnight either,” says Ashleigh Whitcomb, a member of the UP community since 2014 who is on a weight loss journey to lose over 300 pounds.
