My Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. On December 17, 2009 Jack was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.  He was 4 years old.  We've created this website to keep friends and family updated during his treatment. Thankfully we can say Jack has kicked cancer's booty! He was officially called cancer FREE in February 2013.

Thank you to all for your love, support and prayers.  

Much love,

Eric, Erin, Jack and Lucy
