Liliane and I are part of a club that we hope no one else has to be a member of - The “Momcology” club, both having children with cancer. The first time I met Liliane and Jacob was Christmas Day and my oldest son Bryce and I were running out of CHEO after being given a few hours pass. Liliane was delivering food to all the parents on the Oncology ward. Liliane gives and gives to everyone but now it’s our turn to pay it forward and help support their family in probably their greatest hour of need. I feel the need to help as I have sat and slept in that same ICU chair Liliane is now, watching the beeping and flashing machines, the dedicated ICU team doing everything possible to save your child, your baby. You feel so helpless but let’s allow them to focus on Jacob and not have to worry about anything else! We are hoping to take as much financial strain off Jacobs family as possible. This amazing family has been through so so much already and this is how we can help them. We invite you to Google "Jacob Randell CHEO". The first 4 pages will tell you everything you can possibly want to know about our young friend and his family: Everything about his messed-up story and his amazingly strong family. You may notice stuff about his baby sister suffering from & surviving the same horrible AT/RT brain cancer that he did at age 5 or the fact that she is only recently 5. You will notice many things. What we noticed most is that the first 4 pages were about our young 14-year-old friend. THE FIRST FOUR GOOGLE PAGES…
Tonight, once again, Jacob is fighting for his life. His parents Jason and Liliane are exhausted. They have been fighting to save their own children’s lives for the past 11 years.
Tonight, Jacob is in ICU… sepsis shock due to a biopsy complication… a surgery that for all intents and purpose went well, until it didn’t.
We do implore you to Google Jacob Randell CHEO. You will be knocked off your feet by this amazing young man and you will quickly see why we once again are asking you to be part of his army of love. We beg you, please look up to the stars tonight, take a deep breath and send out your very best intentions to the Universe. Jacob and his family need our united heart, our hearts, and our love. And if you are a person who prays, please please please pray for our friend.
I promise you, Jacob Randell is worth your time.
Let see how much we can raise for them so that all they have to focus on are their beautiful 3 children and getting Jacob back home.
