Jesse is unlike other 7 year olds; he is strong, brave, and fearless. Jesse is also battling a relapse of ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia) and undergoing intense treatments of chemotherapy. However, you would never know this if you met Jesse. He is full of life, always smiling and very positive. My friend and coworker (Pegah Arias), and myself (Joseph Weiss) who are both nuclear medicine technologists have had the pleasure of meeting Jesse during a routine nuclear medicine examine just prior to his relapse. He had an infectious personality and exhibited the maturity and fearlessness of an adult during the exam. He left a lasting impression on us.

When we were confronted with the news of Jesse’s relapse we knew we had to do something for a special young man and his caring family. Pegah and I decided to show Jesse how tough and inspiring he is, by testing our own physical boundaries. We are doing this by running a 5k and dedicating our efforts to Jesse. We are also asking for people to please sponsor us. All of the money collected will go towards The Hope for Jesse Fund, which will help Jesse’s parents cope with the immense medical expenses they are encountering while Jesse fights off ALL!!

 

So please donate and help Jesse and his family. Any monetary contribution is acceptable and appreciated.
