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!

Excerpt from the Book of Jake year 2000

Jake and his "imaginary wife" Boo Fahrner
My talents:  being good at math, sports, swimming, computer and mowing the grass.

My appearance is handsome, usually wear sweats in winter and shorts in summer.  I have blond hair and blue eyes.  I am pretty short and skinny.

My girlfriends are Tera Street, Kara Lubbers and Sarah Hamatake.  My best Friend is Derick.  My first pet was a cat named Tigger.

My favorite neighbors are the Lubbers.  I liked to play with the remote control cars.

My life goals are:  doing building for 6 years, being a nurse for 18 years, to get married to a pretty girl, build a nice house, get a good job and have a good mission.

I want to have three kids.  I am going to have a pretty wife.  I'm going to take her to Golden Corral.  To impress her before we get married, I'm going to show her some really good jewels and buy her a really nice ring  I'm going to take her on lots of dates before we get married.  I'm going to buy her some really cool lamps.
