Jacob McConahay is a 7 year old boy who is battling stage 4 Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma. This is a very aggressive cancer that has spread from Jake's leg to other areas of his body. Jake has had and continues to receive chemo treatments, though none of the procedures have helped yet.
However, fighting his own battle with cancer isn't the number one worry on Jake's mind. After spending many hours at the Riley Hospital, Jake became focused on helping and making sure that all the other children at the hospital were happy.
