My son is in religion class with another 2nd grader Jacob who at the age of 5 was diagnosed with stage 4 anaplastic Wilm's Tumor. He underwent surgery to remove the tumor and on of his kidneys . The cancer had spread to both of his lungs and adrenal glands. Jacob underwent a regimen of chemotherapy and radiation a and finished treatments in august  2012.

March 2012 the cancer returned in his lung and had 16 more weeks of chemo followed vy a stem cell transplant that was completed in august 2012

January 2013 the cancer returned in his lung and the doctors stated they were no longer looking at a cure. Jacob is now going to the mayo clinic where a phase II study of the chemo drug Sorafenib gives them some semblance of hope. Jacob is currently taking the chemo drug twice daily and travels three hours to the mayo clinic each week. Jacob has two siblings at home and his mother is pregnant and due at the end of march.

My son is knows Jacob well and i don't know how to tell him Jacob might not make it. My son only knows that he has been sick.

 Please pray for Jacob, This drug is his last hopecrying mini

 I am so sorry. That is a difficult thing to have to talk to your son about. Prayers that God will show the doctors at Mayo what they need to see to help Jacob. that He will give Jacob,the stretngth he needs to keep fighting and comfort him and his family as they continue down this difficult path.
