As many of you know, our cousin Henry was recently diagnosed with Burkitt's B-Cell lymphoma. Henry is only six years old but has been fighting the disease with a great deal of bravery for the last two months. While the treatment has sapped some of his energy, he has retained his good looks, his infectious smile, and most importantly, his fighting spirit. Henry has remained active through drawings, Legos, puzzles, movies and even the occasional visit from local celebrities (see picture above). He will not let the confines of the hospital walls keep him down.

Henry's family has been by his side the entire time, giving him the strength to persevere through even the hardest days. With this level of support, we know that Henry is going to get better. We can't wait to see him out of his hospital bed and back at school with all of his friends.

We are raising donations for the Jacobsen family to help with the numerous medical and non-medical expenses that continue to build. Please join us in supporting Henry and his family in this battle. Donations of any size are greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your help,
The Birtwell family

We want to say thank you to Shannon and all the Birtwells and DeTores for setting up the donation site for Henry. To be perfectly honest, we did not feel comfortable with the idea. However, we soon realized how the medical and non medical costs were adding up and how they may continue throughout Henry's life. Moreover, we saw how Henry, Sofia and Matilda have been deprived of normalcy, yet have shown resilience and courage throughout this challenge. We hope that the funds raised will help them get back to normal. The wishes, thoughts, prayers and positive energy from friends and family have gotten Henry and all of us through to this point. More than any dollar amount, it's your notes, emails, "Follows," "Likes," letters, cards, handshakes, hugs and love that propel us forward. Thank you for following Henry's journey. You are all remarkable.
