St. Jude Patient Jacob McGee Honored
As Town's Special Guest

Two-year-old Jacob McGee was treated as the Town of Greeneville's special guest Wednesday during his brief visit home from St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis.

Jacob, the son of Greeneville Public Works employee Chad McGee and his wife, Jayma, is undergoing chemotherapy after being diagnosed in October with high risk Stage 4 Neuroblastoma.

The family came home the week of Jan. 5, to celebrate Christmas, and while they were here, some of Chad's co-workers treated Jacob to a special day.

Their first stop was Greeneville Fire Station No. 3, where Jacob received lots of goodies and got to sit in a fire engine.

Next, they gathered for lunch at Peggy Ann Bakery, where Jacob had a hearty appetite, a rare event for him.

After lunch, they visited the Greeneville Police Department, and ended their day at Town Hall, where Mayor W.T. Daniels presented Jacob with one of the town's commemorative coins.

"He had a real good time," Chad McGee said of Jacob's visits on Wednesday. "Just being home away from the hospital and seeing family has lifted Jacob's spirits," he added.

Jacob's diagnosis came after he developed pain in his shoulder and arm, and then a lump on his shoulder. The lump was a cancerous tumor on his adrenal gland with metastasis to his shoulder, arm, legs, skull and bone marrow.

Jacob is a little more than halfway through his chemotherapy, and he is responding very well, according to his dad.

When he returns to Memphis this weekend, he will begin two more rounds of chemotherapy, followed by a stem cell transplant.

Jacob will turn 3 years old on Feb. 2. He can be contacted at Jacob McGee, Target House 2 Apt. 315, 1811 Poplar Ave., Memphis, TN 38104.

To help his family during this time of medical treatment, an account has been set up for Jacob at Heritage Community Bank, and donations can be made via PayPal to (

Jacob's progress is updated on the Facebook page "Prayers for Peanut - Jacob Connor Mcgee."
