On Friday January 12, 2018 Jacob was warming up for a basketball game in Devils Lake, ND.  When he came down on his leg, his femur bone broke.  It was due to a tumor that has been in his thigh that and his family were unaware of.  After a couple hospitals and questions Jacob was brought by airplane from Grand Forks to Minneapolis where he is at the U of M Children’s Hospital.  On Monday January 15, Jacob had surgery to place a pin in is leg to keep the broken bone separated as it was causing Jacob a lot of pain.  While he was in surgery, the doctors took a biopsy to see what kind of cancer mass or tumor it is and get a better diagnosis and treatment plan.  The Petermann family is overwhelmed with the outpouring of community support in these first few days. Please keep Jacob and his family in your prayers.
