This is my 15 month old grandson Jacob. Thinking he just had a lazy eye, eye doctor determined malignant retinoblastoma which had detached his retina. Immediately went to Will's Eye Center and Jefferson Hospital (whose staffs have been excellent!) and has started monthly chemo treatments which go through an artery in his hip up to the artery behind his eye. Very optimistic and very costly. While my son and future daughter-in-law (Oct. 2015) have insurance there are many other expenditures and the portion not covered. Thank you for your kind consideration and help for my little munchkin! Anything will be helpful and if you aren't able - please add Jacob to your prayers! Love, his Nona

Also, please be aware of this condition and spread the awareness- early detection is key! When you look at pictures, if one eye shows red and the other none or a white spot- HAVE IT CHECKED!

2018... Dear family and friends, Unexpectedly the doctor decided it was in Jacob’s best interest to remove his damaged eye. The miracle is he is cancer free! The eye is making it difficult to monitor cells in the back. So it has been removed. Now a prosthetic one is being made at the cost of $5000. Also, it will need to replaced due to eye socket size and ithe acrylic actually yellows (who knew!). All that said Jacob continues to be a real trooper and a hero. This expense is such a surprise and we are hoping that you may be able to help! If not, continue to pray for his being cancer free! If you can donate, every little bit helps and we can’t thank you enough!

We are all so very thankful for each of you and your caring support! Takes a village to rid cancer! Wanted to give Jacob update: tumor has shrank substantially and his life is out of danger. Some of the seeds (floating pieces of the large tumor which were detached) are gone. He will receive a chemo injection in his eye to get the rest of these seeds. Pray for Monday 2nd chemo to continue eliminating the tumor and God to continue to lay his healing hands on Jacob! Love you all- Kyle, Angela, Jammie, Jacob and grandparents
Jacob on March 4, 2015 at Will's eye center to get results of 1st chemo treatment.
