My Story

Jacob was born on September 8, 2001. On February 14th, 2013 Jacob was diagnosed with AML Leukemia. What started out as a routine "I'm not feeling well" visit to Jacob's local pediatrician in Lakewood, turned into a scenario that no child or parent ever imagined they would find themselves in. As God-fearing believers in Christ, we are acutely aware that the facts of the doctors and this world are far different from the TRUTH of the Word of God. Jesus is our Deliverer and Rescuer; He is our Provider and ever present help in time of need. From that doctor visit and from some "routine" blood work to find out why Jacob had been sick, it was discovered that the blood work indicated to the doctors that Jacob had some form of leukemia. Jacob is one of the healthiest 11 year olds you will ever meet. After a couple of spinal taps and two lumbar punctures the diagnosis was confirmed and our world seemed to spiral into chaos. However, we know that God is in the business of turning chaos into order. We believe for the miraculous. We believe and do not doubt that God is for us and not against us and that through every trial and test He always provides a way of escape. All blessing and honor and glory and power be to our God and Father forever and ever. Amen! By God's unfailing love and tender mercy, we fully believe in the complete and total healing of Jacob, both inside and out!
