My Story

Jacob was diagnosed with Leukemia Feburary 2010. Since this wrong road that we were forced to follow, Jake has made the scariest time of my life so easy. His smile, gorgeous blonde hair, and bigger then life personality will make anyone's bad day go away. What my baby has been through at his toddler years, can really put life into perspective for those who that were blessed with health, and he will make anyone realize life is precious and so are everybody that crosses your path. Diagnosed at 21 months old, Jakey still continues his battle for his life and still undergoes chemotherapy. He has 1 1/2 left to go of the total 3.5 years of treatment. He has started a co-op preschool, and tried his first season of soccer last fall and is looking forward to starting toddler T-ball this spring!
