Jacob Schaub 2012 Honoree
Thursday February 3 2011, about a week after his 6th birthday, we took our son Jacob to the emergency room at Seattle Children’s Hospital. He had stomach pain for weeks and didn’t want to eat or play so we knew something was wrong. In the emergency room, the doctors took us aside, asked us to sit down, brought us a red box of tissue and said Jacob is very, very sick. He has leukemia. In that moment the world around me fell apart and everything stopped. It was a moment I will never forget. That was when our lives turned upside down, when everything changed and our lives took a new direction. This new direction was different from what we had planned or ever expected. A path I wish no parent ever need to walk.
We got admitted and spent two weeks at the hospital. Jacob’s blood was full of sick white cells. He had a mass as big as an orange of those cells close to his pelvis causing him the stomach pain. His chemotherapy started immediately and the following two weeks were critical. Thankfully he responded well. Recently Jacob has started the maintenance phase with less hospital visits and chemotherapy treatments at home. But he still has a long way to go as the chemotherapy will continue for another 2 years.
Jacob likes food, board games, and tennis. Bowling is something he wants to try soon. Minecraft is one of his favorite computer games and, with the long periods of neutropenia when he just had to stay home, he became an expert in Xbox games and Super Mario. He also likes chess and monopoly. Besides playing games, Jacob is a good cook and a great helper in the kitchen. During long hospital visits the iPad became his most used toy and when we had to stay over night at the hospital he always brought the teddy bear he got when he was born. Jacob’s best friend is his 5 year old brother Simon.
Recently, Jacob has been able to attend school again. When asked about school his reply was: My favorite subject is math because I like numbers and I also like PE.
Jacob is my hero, a little warrior that has looked cancer in the eye and said: I hate cancer. To have cancer feels different. Cancer makes you feel you can die, but I say no to the cancer.
Jacob has taught me so many things this year. He has made me see things in a different way. Cancer has stripped me of everything I was, changed me, and forced me to live in the moment. Nothing can be taken for granted as everything can be taken away in an instant.
