    Hi Jacob,
    You don’t know me but I am a friend of your cousin, Emily. I wanted you to know that I coach the teen drama group at my church and this morning we all lifted you in prayer. You sound like you are a fighter. With your courage and faith and with the Lord on your side, you can do anything. Be strong!

  19. The Jamlady says:

    You do not know me, but I am a friend of Deb Mazur’s. She is a wonderful person and if she is a friend of yours, you must be wonderful people too. This is a terrible disease that I have personally dealt with as a patient once and as a caretaker twice. You need to keep your faith and your family close. Let your friends carry any burdens they want, they need to help you. Live every day to it’s fullest and find something, anything to smile and laugh about. I will be back with words and donations, promise. Jamlady
