My Story

Jack was born on 12/21/05. He joined many relatives and our Lord in Heaven on 5/24/08. At his 4th Dr. appointment (2 of which were visits to the ER) on 9/24/07 he was diagnosed with Medullablastoma (aka: brain cancer). Jack was a free spirited, laid back, fun loving little boy who always played hard. He gave a strong, 8 month long, hard fight with his stuffed friends; bear and monkey by his side along with his parents, big sister, Aunts, Uncles, cousins & grandparents. Although he was young, he knew what he liked, and that was being outside especially riding on the ATV. He enjoyed watching Mickey Mouse every morning & also was a big fan of Spider-Man. Another love he had was for animals; cats, dogs, even birds. He particularly liked watching the animal video clips that are shown on America’s Funniest Videos – oh, how he would laugh! No matter how sick Jack felt, he still worked hard and had a lot of fun when his Birth to Three Therapists would come to work (or as one had told us, play) with Jack. He would even greet them at the door, and at times, pound on the patio door as to get their attention, so he could wave & yell hello or good-bye to them!
