17- YEAR-OLD JAKE ANDERS IS RAISING MONEY FOR HIS DAD, A TRUCK DRIVER WHO HAS TO HAVE KNEE SURGERY AND MISS AT LEAST SIX WEEKS OF WORK.
SEEING JAKE OUT HERE WAS A SURPRISE FOR JEFF ANDERS, ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING THE NEWS HIS SON RECEIVED LESS THAN A YEAR AGO.
JEFF ANDERS says: “It was December 12 of last year. We went to Riley. They pretty much gave him, you know, three to six months.”
ORIGINALLY DIAGNOSED WITH A BRAIN TUMOR JUST BEFORE THE AGE OF 12, JAKE’S CANCER RETURNED LAST YEAR.
THIS TIME, INOPERABLE.
BUT STILL, JAKE WAS THINKING OF OTHERS.
