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!

1 year ago today...

One year ago today...was the beginning of much learning and growing.  I admitted to Jake that I was very nervous about his PET scan today.  The Radiology Tech guy, Doug, was so nice...I was hoping that I would be able to talk him out of revealing some results before we left...but, I think it's against the rules to do we wait, just like the other parents have to.

Dave went with this time.  He did most of the work in helping care for Jake before the scan this time.  I was so happy to share the burden.

I had a very nice session with my (or I should say..Jake's) massage therapist right after and she helped me to relax.  Her name is Leslie and she is very intuitive.  She somehow knows the right things to say to calm my troubled heart.

Now I feel very calm.  Whatever it's ok.
