Jacob's Ladder Foundation came to life on November of 2015. While undergoing his treatments, Jacob was very concerned about all the other children that he would see go in and out of the clinic and hospital. He knew that he was blessed to have such great people in his life that gave him so much needed support. He often asked both of us, "How do you think we can help other children?" And so his dream began. He came up with the name "Jacob's Ladder" and he also came up with the mission statement, "Helping Kids Climb Back to the Top One Step At A Time". Unfortunately, we were extremely busy with Jacob due to his treatments and his bone marrow transplant that we were unable to work on starting the foundation while he was here with us. We are happy and excited that his dream is coming to life! Through the foundation, we will bring joy and laughter to the children in the hospital just as Jacob wanted. We also are going to be able to help families with financial assistance as the hospital stays can be extensive and long. Our mission is huge, but with God's help and yours, it is not impossible.
