Over coming serious illness is not easy. But we are trying to keep hope alive, WCCA TV’s Video Jam and BANDEDGE ask you to please help Jake Gregg
Following many months of being very sick, at only 20 years old, Jake was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia on May 29. AML is a fast acting cancer of the bone marrow and blood, rare in anyone under the age of 65. He was immediately transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital in Connecticut, to be treated by some of the best Doctors in the World. Upon his arrival to the Hospital, Jake also suffered a massive stroke within the first few hours. As a result of this, he is currently paralyzed on his left side, and struggling to speak.
Jake has already undergone many platelet transfusions, apheresis procedures, and started an aggressive 7 day Chemotherapy treatment on May 30.
Jake is guitarist/Banjo player with the band SUNCOOKED.
