My Story

Jake was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocity Leukemia (ALL) weeks before his 2nd birthday. He relapsed after 2 years of active treatment and successfully completed radiation, more chemo, and lots of hospital stays after another 2.5 yaers of treatment. Jake is now an active, HEALTHY teenager! He’s doing great these days and looking forward to turning 16 next month. He still enjoys being outdoors, fishing, playing basketball, collecting things and teasing little sister, Megan. We have realized the benefits from St. Baldrick's in the form of funding for one of the fellows at our local cancer center. Please support St. Baldrick's for Jake and all of our buddies fighting against pediatric cancer! www.teamrivers.com www.caringbridge.org/visit/teamrivers
