Strike Out Sarcoma

24945270_1548896195491634_r.jpegOn October 11th, Jonathan’s life began to change dramatically in every way possible.

In the past couple of weeks, Jonathan has been undergoing extensive testing and at the young age of 12 has been diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, a rare and aggressive bone cancer.


Jonathan is a handsome, fun-loving, kind and caring individual. He is a very intelligent young boy with a great sense of humor. Jonathan is active in sports. He plays soccer, baseball, basketball, and loves to bowl.  He enjoys throwing a football around with his dad and likes to play “wrestlers” with his younger brother Gavin.  When Jonathan isn’t playing sports, he loves to read, play board games and watch Survivor with his mom.

Jonathan has a long journey ahead of him.  Treatments will include chemotherapy, radiation and possibly surgery.  Jonathan is positive! He is finding the strength to fight this cancer!


Jonathan’s treatments will be challenging for him and his family both physically and financially.   His family will need to be by his side to see him through this struggle. As much as Jon and Amy’s pride want to keep this their struggle, it is financially difficult to manage.  They already have been blessed and are extremely grateful for the support received these past weeks, however the struggles are becoming overwhelming and larger than anticipated.  Amy, Jon, Gavin, and Jonathan need continued support from their family, friends and community. 

On behalf of Jonathan and the family, thank you from our hearts!

We are grateful and very blessed.  Thank you for your thoughts and prayers!
