Meet Jacob

Jacob was diagnosed with B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on May 31, 2022. He is the youngest of three boys and enjoys playing Xbox games with his brothers and building Lego sets. Prior to his diagnosis, he played the position of defender on his soccer team with Arizona Sports Complex. He is a big fan of Neymar and Messi and some of his most prized possessions are soccer cards of his favorite players. He also ran cross country at his elementary school and is a Boy Scout with Troop 224 in Phoenix. Jacob has an entrepreneurial spirit and is self-motivated and driven to accomplish his goals. His dream is to play soccer at a university and successfully run his own business someday. His ability to play sports and participate in scout outings is very limited due to his treatment. But he can’t wait to get back on the field and back in nature.  Jacob has spent numerous days in the hospital during his journey so far, battling treatment-related side effects, allergic reactions to medications and multiple planned inpatient stays to receive life-saving chemotherapy. Barring complications or relapse, he is set to finish treatment in October of 2024. His drive to overcome his obstacles is an inspiration and testament to his strength and bravery.
