On September 23, 2014, 6 year old Jack was diagnosed with Pre-B cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. He is now eight years old and in his second year of the maintenance phase where he will have to take a chemotherapy pill every night, get blood work done every other week and return to Texas Children’s Hospital once a month for spinal taps and other infusions. Jack enjoys playing basketball and watching Ace Ventura with his dad. His favorite food is corn dogs and his favorite subject is science. Jack loves to sing, but he wants to become a police man when he grows up because he wants to be able to help those around him. Jack recently enjoyed a fun-filled Disney Cruise with his family for his Make-a-Wish.
Jack wants to thank the participants who are raising funds, in Jack’s words: “Thanks you for your time, money and participation to help my doctors treat me and beat cancer”
