Jewel Jacobs Jewel’s Journey

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting my mom’s Caring Bridge site.  

As many of you know, earlier this month Jewel was diagnosed with lung cancer. This unexpected diagnosis came after what we had originally believed was a persistent bout of the flu.  A lingering cough led to additional testing and the determination that she has non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). 

Jewel is being treated at Mercy Hospital in St. Louis. Our family will post basic updates regarding her progress. We hope this site can be a place for friends and family to post messages of love and support and also share photos. 

We are grateful for your support as Jewel begins her journey. Please know she is receiving every message you send. Unfortunately, at this time she is unable to talk on the phone but cards and written messages are greatly appreciated. 

While the news of my mom’s diagnosis has been devastating, we remain hopeful and are grateful for the love so many of you have shown our family. Thank you so much for your prayers and well wishes.
