Just Me, Jacob…

February 9, 2020

Dear Readers,

This is Jacob, my mother Kate’s middle son.

Most of you probably know me as the one who plays a ridiculous amount of basketball, enjoys the lake, and eats donuts with her–we love our donuts.  It does get a little crazy at times being in our family, but we have fun, that is for sure.

I am now 14 and in the 9th grade.  I run cross country and play basketball.   Just recently I started a new goal, working on a fundraiser.  This is something that I have wanted to be a part of for a long time now.

Myself, along with 5 of my close friends, are raising money for a very important cause, research on blood related cancers.  

We are doing this through The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  We are raising money to better the treatments and cures for blood cancers so patients can live better, longer lives. 

My team, Maeve’s Miracles, is made up of 5 of my friends.  We have until March 13th to meet our goal.

We have all been touched by cancer.   It is a terrible disease. Whether you have had it yourself and are a survivor, are currently fighting for your life through treatment, or have watched a loved one suffer through it.  You know…it hurts, on all levels.

I’m asking, that if you have any desire to help us on this mission that you consider making a tax-deductible contribution to our team.

Please use the link in this letter, below, to donate online, quickly & securely. You will receive an email confirmation of your donation as soon as it is made. 

I thank you in advance for your support.   You will make a difference in the lives of thousands of patients battling blood cancers. I really appreciate your generosity!

And, If you could please forward this link to as many people as you can to encourage them to donate as well I would be very grateful, every donation counts.

Jacob Ziehm
