It's hard to ask others for help, but after the urging of others we decided to start a Go Fund Me page to help with some of the financial stresses.
In 2013, Jacob began having seizures and was diagnosed with a grade 2 oglioastrocytoma tumor. He underwent his first brain surgery and was doing well. About 6 months ago the seizures returned and we found out his tumor was back. Jacob had his second brain surgery in April but when the labs came back it showed that Jacob's tumor was now a stage 3 malignant anaplastic astrocytoma and will require radiation and chemotherapy.
We are raising money to help cover the out-of-pocket costs of his surgery and his treatment . We are hoping to raise enough money that Jacob will not have to worry about working during his 6 weeks of treatment and, if necessary, I can take any time off to be with him and take care of him during this time.
We are so grateful for our family, friends, and work families who have already done so much for us. We cannot thank you enough for the support and love. We love you!
