Honored Skipper Jack

On Tuesday, November 20, 2012, just three months shy of his 4th birthday, Jack was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL.) Over the last two and a half years, Jack has endured countless rounds of chemo and medication, hospital stays and spinal tap procedures. Fortunately, throughout his treatment, Jack exhibited his strong will and desire to get better. Now at age six, he has less than a year left in his treatment and while he continues to receive daily doses of chemotherapy, Jack is triving! He is nearing the end of his Kindergarten year in which he has learned to ready, fallen in love with all things numbers, and become a sports fanatic! Jack is currently playing soccer and baskeball, loves following the Georgetown Hoyas and is lookingforward to a summer outside with his little brother, Charlie. Jack is excited to be named an honored skipper and hopes that by becoming active parterns with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and raising much needed funds, no one will be forced to endure all he has.
