Meet Jake Buerkle—a sweet, goofy Star Wars fan and pediatric cancer patient. When Jake was just six years old, he was diagnosed with high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). He immediately started aggressive chemotherapy and is now just over halfway through a three-and-a-half-year treatment plan. After Jake was diagnosed his mother, Susan, rallied the family together to create a friends and family team—Jake’s Jedi’s—for their local Staten Island Light The Night. To date they have raised close to $10,000 for the cause! But, as Susan says, “It’s still not enough… Money raised means lives saved. Even one death is too many.” Join Susan and Jake in the fight against blood cancers—walk with Light the Night.
