My Story

Jack was diagnosed with Burkitt's Lymphoma in Spring 2015 and started treatment at Riley Children's Hospital. He was a brave and trusting patient. After five rounds of chemo his response was promising, but the lymphoma spread aggressively. In the fall of 2015 he went to New York to participate in a clinical trial at Maria Ferari Children's Hospital. His treatment included more chemo, radiation, and a stem cell transplant. Throughout his treatment, Jack faced the days with good humor. He developed a love of cooking, honed his video-gaming skills, and continued to find fun in his circumstances. Losing Jack to the aggressive spread of his lymphoma to his brain was a heartbreaking blow to his family and scores of supporters known as "Jack's Pack." We want to honor Jack by providing support to the important work of researchers with St. Baldrick's. We have seen the impact of cancer on families and want to know that the future will be brighter.
