Jake’s Medical Expenses

Jake is such a Trooper, if you have it in your heart to help this family out, any amount will help with travel expenses and medical costs.

Well, these are not words I ever wanted to hear or type. We got the pathology back from Jakes brain surgery today. It is indeed the same cancer, but not a good prognosis. We have a lot of decisions to make. They will treat it like we are fighting to cure, but told us at some point we will have to make a decision how far we want to go. Buying time versus quality of life. They have talked to us about hospice care working closely. I thought I had a broken heart before. I think it shattered into a million pieces today. Jake took it very well. He is a trooper. He has the outlook that he can beat this and if not he knows where he is going. Through the breakdown today he has been the one to joke and lift us up. Please pray as we go forward with treatment. I do know we will be doing radiation. We will have to weigh the benefits of chemo when the time comes to make that decision. He is at a very high risk of stroke where the tumor is. If anyone can make it through this impossible prognosis it is Jake.
All I do know is since Jakes first cancer fight I have always looked around, and been so thankful for every Moment. I have had so many times that I think I want to remember life just like this. I am grateful for many extra moments God has allowed us these last four and a half years. I am praying for many more. This prognosis seems impossible and final, but God is the only one who knows the number of our days.

Hello Everyone,

We are nearing the end of Proton treatment in Cincinnati, 6 more treatments to be exact. So that means Jeff and Amy are nearing that time where they will have to make the lump sum payment of upwards of 20k, so if you can please share this update and the link.

Jake is doing well with his treatment, just the normal fatigue that comes along with it.

The family has been so blessed here in Cincinnati, from the generous family who let's them stay in their home to the "Sunshine" group, who delivers something to the house each day. There are some amazing people in their lives.

Update:

Insurance is not coming through to pay for proton radiation, and the family needs $180,000 up front to be a self pay for his treatments. He has started treatments here in Indianapolis, but this type of radiation is not the good kind for him, he could go blind and have brain necrosis.

Please donate if you can, every penny helps, and please share the link to everyone you know. Below is a link to the news segment that aired last night.
