Jake's Journey

 Please support The Gentile-Farrell Family as  they prepare Jake for the fight of his life!
Jake Daniel, 13 innocently hurt his ankle while riding his quad.  An MRI of the injury and biopsy that followed confirmed the unimaginable.  On Wednesday July 26th 2017 Jake was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma (bone cancer).  Our family is shocked and beyond devastated.  Without time to even process the diagnoses preparation for treatment began immediately.  In just a few short days Jake has had additional imaging, biopsy, blood work, PET scan, and surgery for port placement.  
Aggressive Chemotherapy is starting immediately!

Jake will be  hospitalized during his treatments, and will need his parents, grandparents, and family by his side day and night. The aggressive treatment and its side effects are estimated to be anywhere from 6 months to 1 year. 

This fund will help Jake's family with uncovered medical expenses, lost wages, travel costs, and additional expenses so that his parents, grandparents, and family can be at his side and help him battle for his life!

Your support, prayers, and well wishes are very much appreciated.
