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!

Blah, blah, blah...

We went to the doctors today. Chemo is the only treatment at this point. Jake is resolved to try it...along with some essential oils (possibly). If there is no improvement by the second round, we quit that and move on to something else.
I'm a little tired of writing "bummer" updates!
My apologies!
Very stressed out and overwhelmed today! I'm trying hard not to snap at my boys...
Now I need to go deal with the rest of my life...
