WELCOME TO JAKE'S WORLD
Jake is an amazing 13 year old boy who also happens to be an angel sent from God to make a positive impact on as many people as possible. We have seen the affect Jake has on people and its truly incredible. The tears of worry and despair from when he spent his first weeks in the NICU have transformed into constant tears of joy we now share with an extended network of family and friends as we celebrate each smile, laugh and EVERY accomplishment.
Jake was diagnosed at 6 months of age with Pallister-Killian Syndrome. Pallister-Killian Mosaic Syndrome or PKS is a chromosome abnormality when a tetrasomy of the short arm of chromosome 12 (12p) occurs for no known reason. Please take the time to learn more about PKS by clicking the PKS Kids Official Website link to the left. Together with other families of children with PKS, we started a non-profit organization aimed at educating the medical community and the world about Pallister-Killian Syndrome. Please help spread the word!
