Jake (age 7) was diagnosed with stage four alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma, a soft tissue cancer. While at Riley for a radiation treatment, his mom asked him what he thought kids battling cancer at Riley needed. Jake’s answer was “I think they need Pillow Pets” because there are times that they don’t feel good, the doctors don’t always tell them good news, and it’s scary. This was the beginning of Jake’s goal to collect 1000 Pillow Pets by the end of March 2011.
