Gold Ribbon Hero Jacob H

“Reason this person is a Gold Ribbon Hero: Jacob was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma in August 2015. He had a tumor in his 8th rib on the left side. He has endured 15 rounds of chemo with surgery after the first 6 rounds. He only has 2 more left. They removed his 8th rib and part of the 7th and 9th. He has spent more time in the hospital than at home due to mouth sores and fevers from the chemo. What makes him a hero is this….after his first chemo, he developed mouth sores and a fever so he was in the hospital and was there on his Golden Birthday. He was 11 on September 11th. But he told me and his dad that he didn’t want gifts for himself for his birthday. He wanted people to donate money to St.Jude. He wanted to do for others even though he was fighting cancer. How awesome is that!? We got the word out to family and friends about what Jacob wanted to do and also his school got involved. He goes to a small Lutheran school who has been an awesome support thru all of this. But Jacob, through his selfless act, raised almost 3 thousand dollars, while in the hospital and donated the money to St. Jude. He is one amazing, strong and loving kid.” – Dawn H
