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!

Before retiring to bed, Jake showed me that he had found lumps on his thighs and stomach.  A wave of emotions follow me to my room as I try to stay calm and wondered if sleep would come tonight.

As I lie awake, in my bed, hope of rest floats out the window with the breeze.  I finally succumbed to taking a sleeping pill with the hope that my fears would no longer weary me and peace would rest my soul until the break of dawn.

The doctor said it could be anything...not necessarily new tumors.  So...another trip to the hospital.
