This is Jake's Story...

Jake is a 20-year-old twin who has been diagnosed with stage 4 Rhabdomyosarcoma, a very rare form of cancer. Going through a vigorous daily radiation treatment and weekly Chemo treatments make him extremely tired, weak and sometimes nauseous.

Jake is otherwise a normal teenage kid. He likes playing computer games, paintball, swimming and golfing. He loves hanging out with his four brothers, 4 wheeling, camping, and ruining his mom's laundry baskets while making home videos. He hopes to someday become a computer programmer.

This blog was started to keep his family and friends updated on his status.

Addendum: Jake became cured of cancer, free of pain and everything this world brings on September 29, 2010. He continues his journey in Heaven. He is doing awesome! Hope you're doing the same!

His family thanks you for your generosity in donations, love and service. God has shown us many tender mercies!
Thanks for being one of them!

The Hike, The Cave, the Adventure...

It was free admission to State Parks on Saturday, so Jake and his friend Austin decided to take the Timpanogos Cave challenge.  They had to get on a waiting list.  I wanted to go with them, but couldn't leave when they left.  They didn't add me to the list for the reservation, I guess I'm not cool enough to go with the boys! hehe  I couldn't believe that Jake would try this, but I'm glad he did.

The hike is quite steep.  When I asked him how he did, he said he had to rest every 20 feet, but he made it to the top!  Austin offered to carry him on his back, but he wanted to make the climb himself.

He said they only had to rest a couple times on the way down, but the cave was pretty cool! I asked them to take some pics of Jake, but they wouldn't.  Thanks for being patient with him, Austin!  Jake, you're pretty awesome!

Love you!
