Help Jakob kick cancer's ASS!

Try to think back about life when you were 16. Your biggest concerns were probably getting your drivers license, trying to pass Algebra, and hoping your crush would notice you. For my nephew Jakob, his life was no different until a few days ago. In what seems like overnight, Jakob went from a healthy, athletic teenager to cancer patient. Jake has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. While doctors are optimistic, Jakob has a long road ahead of him. He will endure 6-8 rounds of chemotherapy where he will be hospitalized for a week at a time. We know Jakob is strong (and not just strong, but #HwangStrong) and is going to beat this without question, but the financial tolls are going to add up. Even with health insurance, my sister in law and brother in law will be paying medical bills for many years to come. Please consider donating if you can, and remember to keep my family in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you.
**All funds will be going directly to Jakob's care and will be managed by his mother, Karri Hwang.
