Hi everyone, I am one of the room parents in Jacobs class and with the permission of his mother I am creating this account on her behalf.  Jacob is a 6 year old boy and kindergarten student at St. Maria Goretti School in Schiller Park, Illinois. Just days before his birthday on January 18, 2018 he became gravely ill and was absent from school. Shortly after his birthday, his physician sent Jacob to Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago for further testing and it was discovered that he had cancer in his blood. The diagnosis was Childhood Leukemia. This was devastating to hear for Ms. Corona, Jacob's mom, as she is a single parent. Originally from Mexico, Ms. Corona came to this country to seek a better life. She has a wonderful son who she considers a blessing. She is naturally distraught at the prospect of having to take a leave of absence from work to provide round the clock care for Jacob. Her employer issued insurance will run out when the sick leave ends as the treatment for Jacob will take three (3) years. Ms. Corona is fearful that not having any income at the moment she will not be able to pay her rent and bills. Any donations you are able to contribute will be greatly appreciated. These donations will help her manage the expense of driving into downtown Chicago for his weekly treatments, purchase the medical supplies and prescription medicines that he needs, and make it possible for Ms. Corona to purchase groceries to keep up with the dietary needs of her son. Thank you for your prayers and donations. The road to recovery is long and the aggressive chemotherapy and blood transfusions are going to take their toll on little Jacob. But with your prayers and support, we hope to make it a little easier for the Corona Family to deal with the financial hardship they are beginning to endure.

a year ago today Jacob was diagnosed and although he still has a couple years left of his treatment with the support and prayers from friends and family he and his mom have made it through this year and they are ready to take on the next 2 years of treatment. As of now the bonemarrow transplant seems to be working despite the infection, the meds seem to be working. Thank you everyone for all your continued support.

Good Day everyone. Jacob's mom shared some great updates and I'd like to share with you. I haven't had a chance to speak with her to get full information but this is what she was able to tell me so far. It's brief but it's good news
She says Jacob's labs continue to show improvement and although there's still 2 years of chemotherapy a head the hardest part is over and with your thoughts and prayers he was able to keep a smile on his face. She asks if we can continue to pray for him.
Thank you.
