Hello, I'm Jake. Thank you for visiting my site. Although my battle to beat cancer began at the tender age of just 14 months old, my story began many years earlier. After my big brother Luke was born, my family began the long journey to have me and complete our family. A roller coaster ride of hope and heartache ensued as my family endured multiple rounds of in-vitro fertilization (totally 14 rounds to have both me and my brother). Finally, their prayers were answered with great joy as I was welcomed into the family. Everyone who knows me loves me and knows what a sweet, gentle, calm and happy soul I am. Tragically, back in February of 2013, the unthinkable happened. I was diagnosed with a stage 4, rare and very aggressive form of pediatric cancer called alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma. While the diagnosis is devastating, my family is confident that I possess the strength and fortitude to earn the title of Survivor. As my journey toward a miracle continues, your love and prayers are making all the difference.
