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!

Thanksgiving Weekend

That was a short-lived celebration!  Counts are back down...however, the nurse said this is the normal road right after chemo.  At least we are getting away with no shots right now.  I asked if he needed them, since his counts were down again, but they said there you go!  Apparently his other blood counts are borderline, so he's getting a transfusion for a bonus!  He always feels better after a transfusion, so I don't mind as much as Jake does.  He is amazingly keeping a good attitude!  Love you Jake!
