The FEWSIC motto has helped motivate Jake throughout life and his baseball career. Jake and Allison believe it has a double meaning for both sports and living with diabetes in setting out to accomplish things others believe you cannot achieve. Jake and Allison, along with the help of Terry and Polly Fox, established FEWSIC in 2006 and it became a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization in 2008.
