If everyone who sees our page would donate just $5 or $10 we could help this family with the astronomical costs of Jacobs care!! As many folks know Ã¢â‚¬â€œ our Jacob has struggled with health issues his entire life. He was born a preemie at only 3 lbs and at 15 months old was transferred to Johns Hopkins university where he almost died from a non-working immune system. It was only a miracle that Jacob survived. The years following that have kept Jacob in the hospital some years more than he was at home. He has had more surgeries, tests, treatments, medication regiments (ever tried to keep a 2 year old, 4 year old, 9 year old tied to an IV pole while at home??) than any one person should ever have to endure. He has been a patient of some of the most talented doctors in the country at Johns Hopkins, CHOP, Duke --- he has been followed by the nations leading genetic disease expertÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.. We have faced everything from sinus infections that wouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t improve to the point surgery was required Ã¢â‚¬â€œ to dealing with Oncology teams trying to figure out a mass in his lungÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Ã¢â‚¬Â¦Some of you may not know, however, that Jacob has had to be in a treatment center for the last 6 months. It is believed that due to a fall and skull fracture Jacob suffered at age 3 (yet another miracle God gave him) Ã¢â‚¬â€œ that he shouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have survived (he fell about 60 feet) Ã¢â‚¬â€œ that he suffered a traumatic brain injury. This did not become evident until the changes in puberty began. This has affected Jacob ability to control his emotions, logically think and respond Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and has left him very lonely, confused and even unable to understand whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going on inside of him. It has been heartbreaking for us to watch and experience this with him. Our faith and trust, however, is in knowing that God loves Jacob and we know He will never leave him nor forsake him.
