Some of you may have heard that yet again Jackie has been facing health problems. It’s been a rough 2 years for him and his family. He is a kind, hardworking, loving father, friend and grandfather.
In early 2016 Jackie was diagnosed with bladder cancer, and had a procedure done where they replaced his bladder with an artificial one. As of May 2017 Jackie had commented that after a CAT scan, PET scan and a biopsy of a lymph node he was officially cancer free.
Since then Jackie continued to have visits to the hospital and as of Wednesday, November 22, 2017 was delivered the results of another PET test. This test came back heartbreaking.
On Thursday, November 23, 2017 Jackie told his only son Josh that he has stage 4 cancer in his bones, liver and kidneys. They are not able to do chemo or radiation and have given him 4-8 weeks at most to be with us. They have decided to start hospice and have asked Josh to start planning for the outcome.
Funds are scarce and Josh and Jackie’s girlfriend Olivia are the only family in the area. Jackie’s wish is to be cremated and due to many things going on in Josh’s life this is going to be hard on him financially.
