Jacob is 8-years-old and was diagnosed with Leukemia T-Cell in 2016. Those who know Jacob say he is 8 going on 18. He is very sarcastic and outspoken, witty and a very silly little man! He enjoys playing video games, tablet games, reading, and loves watching comedy and super hero movies. Since Jacob’s diagnosis a couple days before Christmas of 2016, his family has been at the hospital 2 hours from home more than they have been home.
Jacob’s mom Carmin says, “At age 8, he is my oldest biological child. He has a younger brother (6) and a younger sister (3). He is the pack leader. He is a very protective big brother but doesn’t hesitate to discipline when need be. He makes good grades in school, even now while trying to finish the school year on homebound. He has a smile that lights up a room and a heart so big it barely fits in his chest.” JACOB, WE NEGU FOR YOU! STAY STRONG!
