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!

1st Visit

Today, I stopped to visit Jake's grave for the first time today. I felt an overwhelming sense of sadness...a sad reminder that I won't be talking to my boy for a long time. Sections of dead grass to mark the spot and a small stick with his name...well part of his can just read Charles I hope the monument people aren't confused when they set the stone next week.

The social worker stopped in Friday to see how we were doing. She asked what was the hardest part for me...I said talking about it...reliving the pain. I guess when you live with someone for 20 get used to having them around. We all miss him...alot
