    I first heard about your story a year or two ago. I still check back here regularly and keep you in my prayers. You are so lucky to have such an incredible, supportive family. Your mom is an absolute lioness and I want to be just like her with my own three children.

    May God ever bless you and your sweet family.

    I was very active too I was into the sports and the martial arts. I trained hard and it paid off, I survived. You can do it Jacob I believe in your will to survive. It wasn’t easy my poor mother visited every day. I pray that you have a speedy recovery and that you will never be ill again. God Bless!

    Hi Jacob and family, I pray that you are still doing well. I don’t know the year of the last update, but I see a Sept. so I wasn’t sure if he’s still doing well.

    I was googling and looking for any type of grants or funds available to families who homeschool and have a child with cancer. My son has neuroblastoma, but he is only 9 months old, but we have homeschooled his big brother and big sister for 6 years. Now that things are busier for me, I am looking to switch them to an online private school like Alpha Omega or Memoria press. Anyway, I stumbled to Jacob’s story. If you have any advice we would appriciate it from a Christian family. How did you make this site, its very well done. Here is a copy of Julian’s page if you are interested http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/julianleonard/journal/view/id/52e52f0aca16b44e4ade1221.

  13. Kathy Holmes says:

    I have been praying for your whole family for over a year. I don’t plan to stop. My 3 month old grandson had cancer and chemo so I do understand how awful it can be. While I can’t contribute much, my daughter is sending something from us both. May God continue to use and to bless you all, especially Jacob. Know that you have many, many brothers and sisters in Christ who stand with you in this difficult time. The grandchild I spoke of…is now 31!

  14. Jenn says:
