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!

Hoping for chemo this week!

We did a detox on Jake to see if it would help his platelet count.  Monday we will be getting a blood draw so they can check to see if the platelets are high enough.  Since life does not always work out the way I schedule it, I scheduled racquetball for Tuesday.  That way, if "life" is going to interrupt my schedule, I'll miss racquetball instead of chemo!  (a bit of a stretch, but we are trying anything now! haha).  Oh, and click on the word "detox" if you want to see pictures!  Warning!  Kinda gross looking!

Thanks for your prayers in our behalf!
