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!

Until we meet again..

This stone brings some closure for me...but I can't help think how different this Christmas will be.  Sometimes pondering this thought makes me cry...but I try not to let it last for more than 5 minutes.

Here is the wreath and hook that someone put up.  It made the difference for me...between feeling sadness and feeling love.  There is a sign that says PEACE, some bells, a poinsetta and a little angel.  So sweet.  There were some blue lights on a battery-operated strand...but when I stopped to replace the batteries, someone had taken it.  I hope it was the person that left it and not a grave robber!

  1. What a beautiful headstone. How fun to find the wreath there with its shiny lights. A peaceful reminder of Jake.
