My Story

Jake(left) who was active in all sport's Football, Baseball, wrestling, and deer hunting, had a life changing diagnosis at the age of ten with, Osteosarcoma ( a localized malignant bone tumor) in his left upper arm-not knowing what was ahead for Jake. We thought at least the tumor's not in his pitching arm..after a year of inpatient chemo treatments and a couple of surgeries, Jake was doing pretty well, but as we know now, cancer doesn't give up easy. We found out Jake had relapsed with recurrent osteo and no longer local but metastasized into both his lungs. He lost his arm within a year of being diagnosed and had a double lung tumor removal surgery in late February.
