This is the 11th year Ernst & Young LLP (EY) has joined up with friends and family to support me in memory of my son Jake, who lost his battle to Medulloblastoma in January 2009. Our team EY in the Spirit of Jake has been a major contributor and fundraiser over the past 11 years and has raised over 150k. We have led the charge with our goal of raising significant funds to assist with CHOP's mission of one day eradicating pediatric cancer so other children never have to endure what Jake went through. Jake was only 2 when he was diagnosed with this malignant brain tumor and 3 when it took his life. EY has partnered with me to support this important and impactful cause. EY has been by my side from the moment this horrific event happened to Jake and our family when we heard the words 'Your son has a malignant brain tumor and we will do everything we can'. Our team will not give up this fight until every child wins this battle and survives. Thank you for taking the time to visit this website but most importantly thank you for making a donation and contribution to our future; our children.
