Jake is a 17 year old senior at Capital High School.
He just learned that he has a long tough fight ahead against severe aplastic anemia.
Aplastic anemia is a rare disease in which the bone marrow and the hematopoietic stem cells that reside there are damaged. This causes a deficiency of all three blood cell types (pancytopenia): red blood cells (anemia), white blood cells (leukopenia), and platelets (thrombocytopenia).
Jake and his family will be traveling soon to Salt Lake City. Testing for a bone marrow match will begin soon.
Your support will help with urgent medical costs including bone marrow transplant.
Please share this campaign and keep Jake and family in your prayers.
