My Story by Jake
Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
In 2012 at age 16 I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. I had 9 months intensive Chemotherapy followed by daily Maintenance Chemo. In April 2015 I relapsed my cancer had come back. I underwent lots of intensive Chemotherapy but in August 2015 was told my Leukaemia was too aggressive and my condition was terminal.
On 23rd December 2015 Jake passed away after battling this disease for 3 years.
On the 15th October 2017 there will be a memorial game for Jake. Alongside the game 2 of Jake's' friends will be running the Birmingham marathon for Jake's' chosen charity Cure leukaemia. We are so appreciative of your continued support and commitment to continue the work Jake started in supporting Cure leukaemia as they strive to find a cure for this awful disease.
