September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month 
The Measure of Love is Love Without 
Measure. 
 
Meet Ben, he’s meant for a bigger brighter future! 
Ben is a cancer warrior and survivor, and he LOVES cars more than anything! For his
Make A Wish​ trip, he wanted to visit “Cars Land” at Disneyland, and seeing his face at
Disney was priceless.
My sweet boy Ben was diagnosed with a brain tumor spanning a little over a quarter of
his brain when he was two and his survival rate was very low. Ben has beat cancer
twice, but he still only has a 60% chance of survival. UPDATE: August 11th Ben’s MRI
showed a spot in the area of the tumor from 2014. His oncology and surgical team all

agreed to watch to see if it grows. If there’s growth Ben will begin Chemotherapy and
radiation. For me this is the worst news to recieve after five and a half years of clear
scans.
Did you know?
Every year parents of about 15,300 kids, including kids in our community, will hear the words
“Your child has cancer?”
Cancer remains the number one cause of death in children.
More children than ever before are being diagnosed each year and the survival rate is extremely
low.
Every day 43 children are told they have cancer and 12% of those children do not survive.
The average age of children diagnosed is six.
More than 40,000 undergo treatment for cancer every year.
60% of children who survive cancer suffer long-term effects such as ADHD, depression,
epilepsy, autism, infertility, heart failure, and secondary cancers.
There are about 375,000 adult childhood cancer survivors in the United States—
1 in 530 adults ages 20-39.
When a child is diagnosed with cancer the whole family has cancer, and when a child
dies it causes a ripple effect in our entire community; the schools and churches they
attended, sports teams they played on, and neighborhoods they grew up in. Hope
becomes lost when a child dies in our backyard, and if we do nothing, what does that
say about our community and what does that say to our children?
“It takes a village to raise one child”. — African Proverb
At Jacob’s Heart we dream of a day when childhood cancer doesn’t exist, but until then,
we provide emotional, practical, and financial assistance to families experiencing a
child’s cancer diagnosis. At Jacob’s Heart we provide:
·​ ​Case management​ addressing a family’s unique needs
·​ ​Groceries and grocery gift cards​ during treatment and for six months after
·​ ​Direct financial assistance​ including: rent, utilities and phone
 
2 
 
 
 
·​ ​Family or individual counseling sessions​ ​(many suffer from PTSD)
·​ ​Door-to-door rides to treatment​ ​(Stanford & UCSF)
·​ ​Healing art activities​ for families at quarterly events and home visits
·​ ​Children’s cancer camp​ — ​Camp Heart + Hands
·​ ​C​elebrations and milestones ​to create hope and healing
·​ ​Home visits​ including: assistance, counseling, art therapy and play
·​ ​Grief support ​including: practical assistance, counseling, and peer mentoring
Today’s the day where you can give to help children with cancer, and their families.​ ​We provide
intensive support for families and children with life threatening illnesses and 100% of our
services are given through donations.
We invite you to become apart of Jacob;s Heart by donating on our website:

September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month, Meet Ben

  • 1.   September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month  The Measure of Love is Love Without  Measure.    Meet Ben, he’s meant for a bigger brighter future!  Ben is a cancer warrior and survivor, and he LOVES cars more than anything! For his Make A Wish​ trip, he wanted to visit “Cars Land” at Disneyland, and seeing his face at Disney was priceless. My sweet boy Ben was diagnosed with a brain tumor spanning a little over a quarter of his brain when he was two and his survival rate was very low. Ben has beat cancer twice, but he still only has a 60% chance of survival. UPDATE: August 11th Ben’s MRI showed a spot in the area of the tumor from 2014. His oncology and surgical team all   1

Did you know? Every year parents of about 15,300 kids, including kids in our community, will hear the words “Your child has cancer?” Cancer remains the number one cause of death in children. More children than ever before are being diagnosed each year and the survival rate is extremely low. Every day 43 children are told they have cancer and 12% of those children do not survive. The average age of children diagnosed is six. More than 40,000 undergo treatment for cancer every year. 60% of children who survive cancer suffer long-term effects such as ADHD, depression, epilepsy, autism, infertility, heart failure, and secondary cancers. There are about 375,000 adult childhood cancer survivors in the United States— 1 in 530 adults ages 20-39. When a child is diagnosed with cancer the whole family has cancer, and when a child dies it causes a ripple effect in our entire community; the schools and churches they attended, sports teams they played on, and neighborhoods they grew up in. Hope becomes lost when a child dies in our backyard, and if we do nothing, what does that say about our community and what does that say to our children? “It takes a village to raise one child”. — African Proverb At Jacob’s Heart we dream of a day when childhood cancer doesn’t exist, but until then, we provide emotional, practical, and financial assistance to families experiencing a child’s cancer diagnosis.
