Help Jacob

On May 8th 2013, my cousin Amanda Paige and her husband Scott Paige were given very sad news. Their 4 year old son Jacob was diagnosed with cancer at Upstate Galisano Children's Hospital. Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. More specifically: T cell lymphoblastic lymphoma.
Defined: Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) isn't just one disease. It's actually a diverse group of blood cancers that share a single characteristic in how they develop. NHL generally develops in the lymph nodes and lymphatic tissues. In some cases, NHL involves bone marrow and blood. In Jacob's case the marrow has not been effected. Dr. Sima says that this is about 90-95% curable.
Treatment: Month 1: Daily chemo pills and Tuesday Chemo Treatments through his port. Some Tuesday will be more involved and Jacob will have to go to the Children's OR for Lumar Puncture (LP) where another form of Chemo will be administered. This is going to be a long process and a lot of out of pocket expenses. I am trying to raise money to help alleviate some of the financial stress so she can fully focus on Jacobs recovery. Any amount will help. Thank you so much. My family means the world to me and I want to help them in anyway that I can.
