Jake is my 18 year old nephew Jake was diagnosed with Peripheral T-cell Lymphoma at 14 years old Jake has over the past 4 years spent his days in and out of starship and Palmerston hospital having a multitude of chemo cocktails and a bone marrow transplant which did for a small amount of time put him into remission untill earlier this year where they found he had developed Hodgins Lymphoma ,normally this is quite treatable but unfortunately due to the chemo ravaging his vital organs he now battles for his life once again .

Jake has Aspergers Syndrome and this makes him even more incredible his outlook towards life is one I wish everyone in the world would share .

His passion his family and dogs we ADORE him and just want to give him smiles wherever possibly

Jake doesn’t ask for anything for himself ever he only wants his family to be happy and to kick the hell out of Cancer

GREAT NEWS !!!!!  8 October 2021

Sorry I haven't posted we have just been very busy. So Jake has finished his 2nd cycle and starts his 3rd cycle this coming Monday. His counts are low so he will be having GCSF injections over the weekend to boost his counts.

Jake had a pet scan on Wednesday and we went to hospital today to find out the results.....

The chemo is working and his cancer is shrinking. 😃

We are just so over the moon. Jake did his happy waving hands dance and I feel like I have just won the lottery.

Sending lots of love to every1. Xoxo
