Jake had stomach cancer. He was diagnosed in late October 2018 and passed away at the end of May 2019.
Jake was diagnosed with junior rheumatoid arthritis in his teens, which we now know is, as with other autoimmune diseases, caused by food intolerances.In our opinion, it was the treatment for the rheumatoid arthritis which caused the cancer. Enbrel now has a cancer warning on its packaging, particularly with regard to people under 18 years old.
He was incredibly brave and faced it with tremendous courage and dignity. My daughter Kirsty was his primary carer at just 21, and we supported them in every way we could to the absolute best of our ability.
