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!

Still life to live...

My heart does not live in sadness...but when I see pictures of those beautiful blue eyes or ponder on the sweet memories of Jake, gratitude for those times does not yet outweigh the emptiness of thier departure...but some day ...they will. So we focus on not letting the awesomeness of today get lost in the sadness of my new profile pic is no longer who I miss, but who I still hug every night...because there is still life to live and love to give.
