Lcpl Jake Waggoner – Our hero

10400896_35932099336_9189_n I met Jake 7 years ago when I first learned about his brain cancer. He was 26 years old then and had just returned from Iraq. We helped fund raise for him and he became more than just another sponsor. He became family. I went down to visit him and his family last year after learning that he cancer had returned. He had completed his degree and planned to become a radiologist and help other cancer patients. We spent some time together and we had a great time while I was down in Arizona. We signed on to make sure we would be there for whatever his family and Jake needs. Today I received a call that I knew would come but was not prepared. This guy is like a brother to me. My prayers go out to all affected by this hero and his family right now.
