Jace Jones joined the Navy less than two years ago with the dream of traveling the world. Without hesitation and to no ones surprise, he chose Bahrain as his first duty station. While there, Jace began to notice a lump on his breast bone. It wasn't a painful lump, just weird. He contacted medical with his concern. After a few appointments and a biopsy, it was discovered that he had Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and it was aggressive and spreading quickly. By the time we arrived in Virginia and a petscan was conducted, the news had us all in tears for days. Bahrain didn't get it wrong, in fact it was much worse, the cancer was detected in his spleen, his lung, behind his eye, his kidneys, liver, and more. Chemo was started immediately.

I was honored to not only be his sea momma, his watch commander, but also his escort for medivac back to the states. However, Jace's family has been incredible. From the moment we landed in Virginia, his mother and sister were already there waiting for us. They have been his constant support and I want us to be able to support them as they go through this difficult and challenging time. Jace is our family member too, so let's ensure that they have the means for meals, incidentals, and taking Jace on day trips when he is on break from his chemo treatments. He will undergo a week of chemo with two weeks to recover, for the next four months. I want to ensure that on his down time we can allow them a break from the hospital scenery.

Any little bit helps and thank you all in advance for your support and most importantly your prayers. #JaceStrong
