Hi, My name is Wells. I have a 5 year old girl who is 9 mos. out from her last chemo treatment. she has been in remission for a year from Rabdomyosarcoma. Thank God.. My cousin katy Judd passed your mission and info on to me. I have a pit in my tummy...I tried to read your diary but it was too painful. It took me right back to my days with Emma's illness and the fear I am cunsumed with on a daily basis today. My heart is so sad for you and your entire family..especially Jack. please kiss him on the for head for me. I will tell everyone I know and who is a member of Emma's website to help you in your fight for a cure and pray. Its so sad how our goverment spends less then 8 cents on every child who is diagnosed fighting to find a cure!!! our children are our future..we need more....Emma and I will pray for you and Jack....bless you...

Hi Lynch Family, What a wonderful time we had last night when we visited the Holiday Light Show in Tewksbury, Maddy in tow with two friends and a mom, loved the hole set up!! We especially liked Santa's helicopter! Maddy's favorite was showing everyone her picture with Jack, she was so proud!! God Bless, The show was great! Love, Cathy


OK! I have officially fallen in love with this little boy! I was scanning through tv channels and happen to come across the story of the millions of lights on that house.... then the story continued and i melted.

Jack you are a little fighter my dear, and definitely cute as anything I have ever seen.

Keep strong and keep fighting my little man. Everything happens for a reason.

Keep that smile on ALWAYS!

Jamie Geadreult

Hello, I was watching the news and saw the very touching story of little Jack. This year I lost both of my parents to cancer. Such an experience has changed my life. The loss of my parents was expeted so we learned to except it, not to say that it was easy. I really hope Jack can be strong and defeat this so he too can tell his story and help others to continue the fight. Please give Jack my best wishes, he will be in my prayers. I hope you all will have a great holiday.

-From the heart- Jamie

Jack and his family will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers throughout the holiday season and beyond in hopes of alleviation of this debilitating illness and optimism of finding a cure with the possbility of a stem cell transplant. I work for an autologous stem cell cryopreservation company, and value the importance of such medical technology to be able to possbily treat these life threatneing diseases. May God bless Jack and his family.

Best regards,

Daniel Pugh

Caitlin Dignan

First of all I am so sorry that this is happening to such a young child. I would like to do whatever I can to help. Today some friends and myself visited 220 Cabot Road. It has influenced us to make copies of the flyers and pass them around to the students attending Burlington High School.I hope that the results will be rewarding. Please let me know if we can do anything else to help. It is comforting to know that there are still good, caring people in this world, such as yourself. I wish you the best of luck, and I will keep Jack in my prayers.Happy Holidays!

Michelle Nichols

I found out about your Jack today when Helene De Vries, a headhunter, called me out of the blue about finding someone for a job she was trying to fill. When I told her about all my impressive busines credentials, somehow I happenend to mention that my son died of cancer (medulloblastoma)- and that was when our conversation took a turn. She told me about Jack and about his fundraiser she was going to TONIGHT.
I write to encourage you and to compliment you on finding something good about every day.
There are no coincidences - how else could you, in Boston, connect with me, in Houston, Texas?
May God continue to bless and keep you as you go through this tough time.

They are great people and your Dad and I are golfing partners. He is a good golfer, but I know he is a much better Dad than he is a golfer!!! And your Mom, well, she is the best Mom a little boy could ask for!
And even though we have not met, my fiance and I feel like we know you. We read about your updates, and laugh at all of those great pictures on your website! You are a very handsome boy!! So even though we don't know each other, I want you to know a few things.... Whenever you don't feel so great, you might want to have your Mom or your Dad read you this letter. It always makes me feel better too. I hope it does the same for you!

Say "Your welcome" when someone thanks you.

Seek out a cat or a dog.

Eat cheeseburgers at least once a week.

Roll in the grass!

Hunt for buried treasure.

Eat candy!

Hug your Mom and Dad.

Keep a promise.

Find a good hat!

Forgive people.

Listen. Listen. Listen.

Apologize if you are wrong.

Ice cream is a meal in itself!

Smile. Now smile bigger.

Think first of someone else.

Hug everyone you like.

Be kind.

Be gentle.

Laugh a little.

Laugh a little more.

Dance whenever you can.

Say please and thank you.

Welcome a stranger.

Make a new friend.

Dont eat the following: worms, yellow snow, or brussel sprouts....Ever!.

Sadie Ordower

Hi Jack. My name is Sadie Ordower. I figured it was long overdue that I write you and introduce myself. I am 1 1/2 years old and live in New York with my parents (who are friends with your parents). Don't worry, I am not a Yankees fan. In the past couple months, I finally got a handle on this walking thing- you must remember what a pain that was with your parents continually prodding you. Geez. Anyway, these days I am very into buses and planes. And my favorite color is blue. I know, it doesn't seem very girly, but I've got to be me.
I admit that I am a New York City girl, but I hear that Boston is nice too. My dad talks about going to school there and how much fun he had, but he said some people have funny accents. Do you have a funny accent? Maybe we will visit one day and I can find out.
Anyway, I hope you have a great time at Disney World!
Please know that you are in my thoughts (and my parents') and that I really admire your strength and fight. You are a great role model and make all of us kids proud.
All the best,

Peter Ginsburg

Just got the news of Jack's relapse. My thoughts are with you.

Hi, I'm Kimm Comb's sister, CJ's aunt. Kimm passed on your website and asked me to pray. My heart goes out to you as I have a 1-year old. Please know we are praying for you.

Say hello to Mickey Mouse for us.

We love you and you are in our thoughts.

Julie, Chris, Sofia and Lorenzo

Lorenzo Pepe

Dear Jack,

My name is Lorenzo Pepe (no laughing!), and my daddy used to work with your daddy and mommy back in the '90's. I think that makes them officially old! Anyway, I am only 4 months old, but my daddy has told me the story about the little boy from Boston that he thinks is the strongest man in the world. He said his name is Jack Lynch, that's you! I wanted to write to you and say "hi" from Los Angeles so you knew who I was too. I can't wait to meet you someday soon. Until that day, I will have my daddy update me on your journey and will be thinking of you often.

Peace out from west coast,

GM&GP Lynch


I was recently at a wedding expo and saw that Children's Hospital Boston had a booth. They take donations and in turn give you a scroll letting wedding guests know that a donation was made to the hospital. I said this is a wonderful idea, but being that I "grew up" in Floating Hospital, I would like to donate there instead. So I looked up on yahoo to see how I can donate to Floating Hospital and found this website. I was wondering if you know of anything like that where I can donate to the children and get a wedding favor from the hospital saying the money was donated or if I need to make something like that myself. Thanks for having this website and helping other children and their families like my own. I "lived" at Floating Hospital over 20 years ago, so there is hope that children can pull through anything. I had 5 aneurysms surrounding my kidney, which eventually needed to be removed. I'm lucky to be alive, and that is all THANKS TO FLOATING HOSPITAL!!


Hello Lynch family - Jeremy finished round 6 of chemo last week.His counts are starting to drop this week(he is neutropenic)..we have to do another set of mibg scans to see where we are.Jeremy still had cancer in his left shoulder and both knees.He is a strong little boy...take care the dickinsons

I stumbled on your site and Jack is beautiful!! My daughter, Maryanne is also a patient of Dr. Wolfe, she just finished 2.5 years of chemo for leukemia. She'll have her port out this month. I also can understand about expenses as I had to stand outside and beg for money for Maryanne. I can't help financially, but I wanted to send you lots of well wishes and prayers from someone who REALLY understands what it's like to be a mother of a sick child.

Love, Sheryl

I am sorry to hear about Jack's illness. I have read much of the information on your website and will agree that children, even at such a young age are extremely resilent. Much stronger than any adult I know. It is amazing that when things are at their worst, it is our children who have the strength to pull us through.
When I first received the email with the fundraiser information, I was unable to attend. My 12 year old daughter and I were out in Boston. She had surgery at Boston Children's on August 12th and I didn't think we would be back in time. Since her recovery was quick, we returned home early. I am glad to hear you have family and friends close by to help with the long days at the hospital.
Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. See you tonight.


Hey its anna yarbrough again.. i am really sorry for what happend to your family. I hope he gets well fast. Really the main thing is to be strong for him and just for yourself. It makes it alot easier to do so. Good luck with it all madame lynch!!! You know i am here for you if you need to talk..


Hey katie lynch. its anna yarbrough who went to anwatin. since things get to us late i had no idea about what happend till i went on my dad's email and found out about jack and the cancer deal. when you get this madame lynch call me at 612-377-8470 or my cell at 612-558-0266. anyhow hope your frech year goes well.

Rae Ellen Hill

God Bless Your Family. Our son has epilepsy, we understand. What a fantastic website. We heard about your story from Matt "The Rookie" on KSTP in Minneapolis. We will be sending a donation for Jack. Hang in there and take care!

Phil Ritten

Dear Lynch Family,
I am sorry that I will not be able to attend the event in Minneapolis on the 19th of August. I hope that things are going well with your brave and strong little man. Best wishes for the future and I hope that things continue to improve for Jack and all the other children who suffer from this horrible disease. Best wishes, Phil Ritten

hey! I signed the guestbook before participating in the relay for life, and since it has passed I thought I'd follow up. My friends & I had an awesome time at the Relay, and seeing all the different survivors, and teams there really put cancer in perspective for me. I'm so happy I took part in this great experience, and I'm proud of the money that was raised!! I hope all is well, and remember the people out there helping you fight this disease.



I met your grandma only a few weeks ago but I know how special you are to her. We will gladly hold a charity event for you in the spring when your family comes to visit Arizona so we can raise some money for you and your hospital. Hope you are having a really great day today.

I will try to be there. good luck!

Cathy Lewis

Dear Diane, As I read your entry tonight, my heart stopped, I remember when Maddy was in clinic the times when a parent had to face the horrible end of this dreaded disease cancer. But it is with faith that we begin our journey and no matter how it ends it is with faith in God that we must believe that our children are a message, as difficult as it may be, God does have a place for these children, one far better than chemo and needles and pain, and as parents we must trust in the Lord however our journey ends. It is only a cancer family that can truly understand this ordeal we are faced with. We never met Colby, or his family but listening to the many families that have, it sounds as if they are truly a gift to all of whom at the opportunity to know be a part of their lifes.
May peace be with you throug this very difficult time.
with love, The Lewis family

Jen Crowley

This past May my friends and I participated in the Relay for Life in Franklin, MA and thanks to my Aunt Patti Droney we were able to learn about Jack and his story. We dedicated our hours of walking to Jack and had posters around our campsite with pictures of Jack and his story. Jack's story is an inspiration to my team and is an inspiration to everyone who is able to learn more about him! I will try and send pictures of us all at the Relay!

God has been good to this family and with His Blessings you, Aidan, Mom, and Dad can move forward and give thanks to all who have prayed and given good thoughts for you. God Bless you little guy, you are Grandpa's hero.
Love you all, can't wait to see you.

Missy Smith

Dearest Lynch Family-
So glad to see your ebsite. It is wonderful and heart warming. Lewis and I send lots of love and kisses for each and everyone of you. We know it's hard. Life is fleeting but eternity is forever.
We just need to do small things with great love.
I believe in the power of healing. Of course, the deeper the faith, the bigger the miracle. I have quite a few friends who have the gift of healing. Alan Ames is one from Austrialia. For a long time I promoted him here in Washington and therefore I complied the letters from persons who had received healings or family members.
They were endless. Father Robert deGrandis is another. Both have books out. Both travel around the world and have healing services. Alan Ames has a website (Probably deGrandis as well)The website for Alan I know has his travel schedule. It would be worth it to go if he comes to a church near by. His story is amazing. He was a big time sinner and the Lord appeared to him. Heis called the modern day St.Paul. I will contact you with the website. I will also see when he might come to North Andover.

We keep you and yours in our prayers. I will be back in touch. Don't forget St. Gerard who is powerful with God as well as St. Faustina, St. Philomena,the child
saint who nothing can be refused is really powerful with God.
Love, Missy and Lewis Smith

Lori Hand Jankowski

Dear Ed & family,
