Over the past four weeks a lot of people in places like Pensacola FL, Gainesville FL, Georgia, Ohio, New Jersey, and Lumberton NC have been praying for a young man named Jacob Saulnier. If you have every doubted that young people cannot be respectful, polite, hard working, and possess a strong Christian faith you have not met Jacob. He epitomizes all of the above.
Jacob is a senior at Emmanuel College in Franklin Springs Ga playing baseball for the Lions on a scholarship.
After graduation in May he was planning on furthering his education in the Strength and Conditioning Field as a graduate assistant. In February he learned the gut-wrenching news as he was diagnosed with Squamous cell carcinoma, which is a type of cancer that he has on his tongue. He had surgery on March 11th which involved removing part of his tongue and performing skin grafts. On Monday April 8th he begins radiation and chemo.
Recovery from surgery involves a lot of steps including support. Sometimes people forget the recovery part is long and slow. It is easy to lose track of what people are going thru trying to recover from many of life’s events including surgery.
There have been many people who have supported Jacob over the past four weeks including his HS Coach Paul Hodges. When someone is recovering from anything small acts of kindness are significant.
Back in 2015 I wrote a post about Jacob and Paul Hodges.
