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!

No Chemo this week!

That's not necessarily a good thing.  For the first time ever, Jake's platelets were too low to receive chemo.  They weren't low enough to get a platelet transfusion, so they are doing nothing until next week.  It's suppose to be the long-day chemo, so there is a lot of juggling that has to go on to make it work.  Well, it gives us time to fatten him up a little.

Join with me in imagining a healthy, cancer-free Jake!
