My Story

Jack was diagnosed just before his 3rd birthday. Through the help and prayers of family and friends, Jack not only survived by thrived. Aunts and uncles came to visit him in the hospital almost every night he was inpatient or went to his house to help take care of his older sister and younger brother and clean the house so Mom didn't have as much to do when they got home. We couldn't have made it without you all. Jack is now almost 14, an A/B student in middle school, a Boy Scout (a Life Scout, almost ready to do his Eagle Project), played the cello for 2 years in school clarinet for one year, he wrestled two years and tried tennis, he has also participated in judo (off and on), and loves all sports, esp. golf. He plans on becoming an officer in the Army (after all these years at WRAMC and a very dear family friend who is a retired Colonel - go figure). He is planning on being in the JRTOC in high school next year. 2010 will be his second year shaving his head for those kids he knew and became angels, for those who have, like him, slayed their dragon and for those kids who may have to go through what he did. He hopes to be able to shave every year.
