Welcome to the Action Jackson Justice League!

My name is Jackson (aka Action Jackson). I love monster trucks, superhero’s and most of all – playing with my big brother! I hope one day I can play big guy stuff with him. He plays baseball, loves Legos and is my technology guru. In mid January of this year, I was diagnosed with Wilms’ tumor. Wilms’ tumor is a type of pediatric cancer that forms on your kidneys – not fun. So I went to the hospital and the doctors took out the tumor (along with one of my kidneys) and are using a combination of radiation (radiation over – woohoo!) and chemotherapy to attack the cancer some more. Thanks to the great work of the whole medical team I was able to come home to celebrate my second birthday! I had the whole family come over and we had a cake shaped like a monster truck… did I already mention I love monster trucks? I know I will have to be back in the clinic and hospital a lot for more chemotherapy, and that stinks. The road ahead will be long and hard…. but I’m tough and I have a great support system of family and friends from both near and far.

So thanks to everyone for all your support! Let’s take the fight to childhood cancer together!
