Jacob's Story

Jacob is a very loving, caring and generous 15 old young man who is a high school freshman this year. Jacob is a normal teenager whose interests include golf, archery and spending time with his family.  The only difference is that Jacob was diagnosed with a brain tumor at the age of 9.

 

In February 2013, at the age of 10, Jacob endured a 7 hour surgery which successfully removed a grade 1 Gangliogliomas tumor.

 

In March 2017,  MRI's showed a tumor was growing again.   Due to the location of this tumor, the surgeon recommended a new form of chemo, rather than removal, which would be too risky due to the location of this tumor.

 

In April after 11 months of chemo meds Jacob had an MRI which showed little change in his brain tumor.  The doctor has decided to give Jacob a break from the chemo for 3 months!
