My Story

Jacob was diagnosed with Metastatic Ewings Sarcoma at the age of 15 during his freshman year in High School.  The survival rate for his age group much lower and that it had metastasize even lower.  He had five tumors from the first diagnosis and later it spread to his brain and spine.   Jacob a warrior the whole way.  He never gave up and kept FIGHTING ON.  He had about 14 surgeries including one major surgery to replacing his femur, knee and top of his tibia.  Multiple counts of radiation/ proton therapy.   As well as chemotherapy.   Most of his teen years were hospital stays rather the normal teen who gets to enjoy going to school or events.
