Jacob Thompson has been fighting cancer for four years.
He is now nine.
His official diagnosis was stage 4 high-risk neuroblastoma, a common childhood cancer that is also the leading cause of cancer deaths in children.
From our friends at Pratt & Whitney!
Sadly, the disease spread to Jacob’s head and he was hospitalized in October.
The doctors have said that he will remain there indefinitely.
Although Jacob tries to keep in good spirits, it is very difficult.
Since being admitted to the Maine Medical Center, Jacob’s cancer spread to other parts of his body including his hip, which causes him to suffer in constant pain and restricts his movement.
His favorite holiday is Christmas, but doctors, unfortunately, do not believe Jacob will make it until then, so his family decided to give him a special Christmas celebration and the hospital joined in as well.
