My name is Amy and I am fishing in honor of my son Jacob who was diagnosed with A.L.L. leukemia at the age of 8. Jacob endured 1,186 days of chemo and is now in remission. We are thankful to everyone at UNC who helped to save his life. Childhood cancer affects 1 out of 285 kids in the US. It is the leading cause of death by disease of children in our country. We were "lucky" that Jacob was diagnosed with a cancer that is "usually" highly curablable (thanks to research). We hope to raise awareness and money for research so that kids who are diagnosed with all forms of cancer have the same hope for a cure that we had.
