Jack Witherspoon was diagnosed with Lukemia when he was two years old. It would be the first of three such diagnoses. Unable to play with friends because of his delicate state, Witherspoon developed a love of cooking and has since written a cookbook. Now he helps other children with Lukemia by cooking for charity events, which have earned more than $150,000 for the cause.
