On April 11, 2022 after being hospitalized for a few days due to stomach pain Jacob was unfortunately diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). The next day he began Chemotherapy which he will have to have done weekly for the foreseeable future. He will also undergo several bone marrow biopsies and spinal taps to check for cancerous cells.
We are fundraising to help bridge the gap financially for his family. While undergoing therapy he will be unable to work due to immunosuppression, and the toll chemo has/will take on his body. On top of the shock of his diagnosis he and his wife are expecting their first child in July- a little boy. Any contributions will help this little family tremendously.
Jacob and Kassandra are both very grateful for the love and support shown by everyone while they go through this difficult time.
