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!

Again with the tumors...

Jake and I counted tumors again last night...74.  I didn't have the heart to tell him how many.  He has a tumor that is causing him pain in his back.  I believe it's the one near his lungs.  He said it's pushing on his spine.  Not sure what to do with that one.  Seeing the doctor tomorrow. (Sigh!)

Good news...his hair has not fallen out again! 

I had him off sugar and processed foods...hoping that would slow down the growth.  Still going to cut back on the sugar, but at this point, he can eat whatever he wants!
