City leaders proclaim the month of September as National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, honoring children who have lost their lives and those impacted by this disease.
During Tuesday’s Commission meeting, elected officials from North Bay Village proclaimed August 30th 2022 as Superhero Jake Thomas Day.
Jake, 8, was diagnosed with Stage 3 Wilm’s Tumor just a month after he turned four.
He battled the disease for years, heroically navigating through surgeries, chemotherapy and countless hospital visits.
Jake fought hard and ultimately won his fight and has been living cancer free for almost four years!
He’s being recognized in the Village as a community hero and the face of Childhood Cancer Awareness month.
