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!

CT results

I"m in Portland, OR to pick up my mother-in-law.  The doctor called me with the CT scan results.  She said that, besides the 10 or so lumps we could feel in Jake's torso and legs, he had two more small tumors near his lungs (not in).  Those are the two she is most worried about.  She is also concerned that the tumors came back so quickly and are growing so fast.

Jake is ademate that he doesn't want anymore chemo...although that is what the doctor thinks would be the best route to get them all.

Here's my heart.
It's broken.
Can you fix it?
Please hold it until it's all better.
