Help Jake fight Cancer
On 28.07.16 Jake found out he had tongue cancer then on the 29.07.16 found out he also had 2 tumors in his neck as well. This has been a hard time for jake.
Every specialist has described Jake's cancer as a fast paced cancer and advised Jake it's best to do surgery.
Jake tumor on his tongue is 4.6cm long 3.6cm wide and 2cm wide, in addition to this sizing they have to take an extra 1cm around the tumor so Jake will end up losing 2/3 of his tongue they end up taking fat and tissues from his leg to try rebuild the tongue as best as possible but Jake will never be able to eat the diet of a 22 year old and his speech will never be the same they said you will be able to under stand him face to face but not over the phone.
Jake has a hard road ahead he is booked for surgery which is 8-10 hours long then he will stay in hospital for 14 days then he will start radiation therapy.
We would appreciate any help
Anyone would know the expensive cost of parking at royal Brisbane hospital and I am on centrelink myself and trying to support us both plus a 7 month old.

Jake is being so strong and amazing he can hop in and out of bed himself and after rough few days with vomiting we are hoping that is past him now
