Help Jacob Achieve his Dream...He Wants to Live

Saturday is usually my day for something light and fun, my Cinematic Saturday post. Today there is something more important I need to talk about.

I am a huge fan of kids. I have recently read the story of Jacob. He is 6 years old. A little boy with Batten disease. I had never heard of this horrible disease until a couple of days ago. This disease is progressive. The outcome is always the same. It is fatal.




Watch the video. Check out the website and read Jacob's story.

Please help in anyway you can. Spread the word. Make people aware. Say a prayer, send your love. Just a thought...

Hi Nancy,
Thanks for visiting The Bumpy Road! I love all the information you have here. I am going to check out the website. I never heard of Batten's Disease until a few days ago. Thanks for the link to it!

Hi Deb!

Thanks for stopping by, BTW, I liked your site too :D

I never heard of this awful disease until the other day either. It breaks my heart to think of any child having to face such horrors.

I didn't know anything about Batten until recently...I hope the researchers are able to discover a cure soon! Thanks for the information.

Thanks Elizabeth. I hadn't heard of it until recently either. It is so tragic for kids and their families to have something like this to deal with. Lets hope for a cure soon!

I am sure Jacob and his family appreciate all the prayers and hugs they can get. Help spread the word about this disease. A cure needs to be found.

Hi Marvin,

Thank you so much. Please do pass the word along so an awareness can be made and a cure be found. Keep the Kleenex handy while you watch the video and listen to the music.
