Jake is on the far right in this picture. He turned 16 in October, and a week later was diagnosed with a malignant Oesto Sarcoma. This picture was taken a couple of years ago-his cousins, nephews, & me! Since the picture was taken we've had 3 additional little ones born! Jake has been having a rough time with this cancer and our goal is "To beat Little Jimmy!" (the name Jake gave his tumor). His parents have been so supportive, and going through something I cannot put into words. They are two of the "kindest, caring," people I know. They have worked hard all their lives, and face more medical expenses than anyone ever plans for. If you feel inclined to donate - all of us "Thank-you," more than you know.

We remain grateful for family, friends, and friends of friends - who helped all of us get through the tough times.
A Great Year

Jake's latest scans all clear. Bone attachment to his prosthesis looks so good he gets to move to 6 month checks. Still 3 month checks with the oncologist, but wow has he come a long way! Very thankful this year!!

Been awhile since I've posted anything! Jake's last scan remains "Cancer Free.!"
Again, we as a family as so thankful for all the support we received, and so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends. Posting a couple of pictures that make my heart happy and put the biggest smile on my face! They are pictures from his "Make A Wish Trip!" Nothing pleases me more than to see Jake having fun and looking so great!
In the galley!
In command of the ship!
