Meet Jacob, a 9-year-old cancer survivor, via “Love Wisconsin”

Wisconsin people. Wisconsin places. Put them together in an incredibly engaging social media platform and you get Love Wisconsin – an increasingly popular online destination for all things that make the Badger State the special place we know it to be. In only its second year, Love Wisconsin has made a huge impact on our state psyche by offering inspiring stories that make us especially proud to call Wisconsin home.

This summer, Love Wisconsin is partnering with UW Health to share stories of some of our patients in ways we hope you will find especially compelling. One patient is 9-year-old Jacob from Reedsburg, who is being treated for Burkitt’s lymphoma, a cancer that grows in the lymph tissue of the head and neck. Fortunately, most kids with Burkitt’s lymphoma are cured and Jacob’s outlook is excellent. Jacob is truly a wonderful kid who always seems to be thinking more about others. But don’t be too easily fooled by his sweet nature. He can also be a bit of prankster. Check out his story.
