Jacob is a terminally ill boy who will be turning 15 years old this August 28. He is suffering from Mitochondrial disease. It results in his body failing to produce energy for the cells in his body to facilitate proper functioning. This disease leaves him bed-bound with a host of daily, painful symptoms. He is asking for 100,000 cards for his birthday and that is all he wishes.
You may follow his public story on Facebook at Adventures with Mighty Jake or you may follow an account that his parents have set up on Twitter @mightyjake828 - Jacob Priestley.
You may send other things if you wish but really, if you send even one, sweet card, that would make his day! There is a secure postal box that you can send cards to so please share anywhere and with anyone you can that you think would be interested:
P.O. Box 855
Queen Creek, AZ 85142
I'm hoping Jacob reaches his goals of all the wonderful cards, I know he has received tons already! Sending big hugs and lots of love to him and his family! xoxoxo
