Today we’re going to hear another story from what I call the Waterway Interviews, captured during a documentary expedition in a small boat, from Norfolk to Boston.
Each day we’d end up in a new port and each day we’d find someone to interview. I collected a batch of interviews from an interesting cross-section of Americans.
This interview takes place in Norfolk, and in this shortest of episodes we hear from Jake and his father Dave. At 17 Jake was diagnosed with Lymphoma. As the family and friends rallied, Jake began a fight for his life, a fight that fortunately he was able to win.
Here, he and his dad tell the story of Team Jake.
