Our Jake, co-founder and publisher of Generation Q Magazine, has a writing style that captures the attention, asks the reader to listen as she tells the story of what’s happening. Starting her writing career as a news reporter for a daily newspaper helped craft her engaging style. This style also helps when the story isn’t so fun to read. Even if it’s difficult news, she can take you through the details while keeping you engaged right to the end of the story.
So here’s her latest difficult news story. To quote Jake, “I have cancer. Breast cancer.” Yeah that. Invasive Ductal Cancer.
Whew. Now that we have the difficult news out of the way,
head right over to Jake’s personal blog, Mama Makes Quilts, for the story right from Jake’s mouth, er pen. Ever the New Yorker, with the tenacity this city’s people are known for, Jake is already in fight mode. How? Not quite sure yet, there are meetings ahead with doctors, options to considered for the plan of action.
There is no question what GenQ will be doing. For our part, we will be here. We will love and support Jake through all of this. However, this is one time–as a crew, as a company, as friends–that living and working in the same city would be really helpful. Because meals, a herd of cats that need feeding, and loving on Sam.
We’ll be like your favorite bra, and simply support you.
Quilt. Sew. LIVE. Breathe.
