Jake

After a successful surgery to remove a brain tumor, three year old Jake Honig was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma of the brain, one of only four reported cases in history. Like so many parents of children with cancer, Jake's parents spent long hours and extended days at the hospital.  "For Jake, having both of us there was just so important.  It really made a big difference" said Mike. However, the family depended on the income from Mike’s side job as a DJ to make ends meet so when he had to give up this work in order to be there for Jake, the family experienced financial stress and Family Reach provided relief. "The reason I worked both jobs is because we needed it financially.... So now you eliminate that (side) job and throw on the extra expenses, not only medical bills but travel expenses and now every meal is being eaten at the hospital, gas – just all sorts of stuff. That's where the biggest financial impact comes in" said Mike. “When you are going through it (cancer storm), the number one priority is your child. I would let the bills pile up as high as I could before I would take any time away from being with Jake. Any parent would agree with that. … The relief that organizations like Family Reach provide, is enormous! It kind of just keeps you going” said Mike.
