Jace’s Room Dedication

Jace’s Room is official now!  We had a great day last Sunday, and a great turn out.  Cher and I just want to take a minute to say some thank you’s.  Thank you to all that came to the dedication.  Thank you to everyone that made donations to Jace’s Room.  Thank you to Doug Anderson and Michele Charless, two great folks from Presby, for all of their help with helping Jace’s Room become a reality.  Thank you to all of you that have supported us, and prayed for us throughout Jace’s Journey and Jace’s Room dedication.  Thank you to our great friends and to our wonderful family.  Lastly, we want to say one more special thank you to Jace.  Thank you Jace for being the best son in the world.  Thank you for touching so many lives in so many different ways while you were here with us, and now son, thank you for your inspiration that will continue to help others from now until the end of time.  Thank you for making me and mommy the proudest parents there could be.  We love you son!  You are truly the best thing that has ever happened to us!

We will post pictures of the dedication.  Just click on the “Dedication Pictures”  & “Dedication Pictures #2 & Jace’s Headstone” tab to take a look.

Thank you everyone for everything you’ve done.  Jace’s Room is a reality now.  We are so very proud!

We have Met our Goal!!!!!!

Cher and I received great news today.  We have officially met, and surpassed, our goal for Jace’s Room.  We are so grateful to each of you that have supported this dream of ours.  

We have also set the time for the dedication.  It will be at 2:00 pm May 10th in the NICU at Presbyterian Hospital in Plano.  Each of you are invited to attend.  We would love to have you there.

Again, thank you all for your continued support and prayers.

Moving Forward on Jace’s Room

Cher and I have had our final planning meetings with the hospital.   We have given them our floor plan and specifics that we want for Jace’s Room.  Below is a picture of the floor plan. 


We are a little over a month away from the dedication day (May 10th), and we are very excited.  Over the next few weeks, Cher and I will be shopping for the items we want the room furnished with.  Hopefully, we can convince some of the stores to donate these particular items, but we can’t count on that entirely.   

For all that have donated toward Jace’s Room, please know that this fund is what we are able to draw from in order to furnish the room, and we THANK YOU so much for your kindness.  We are, however, still in need of more donations, so if any of ya’ll out there are interested in doing so, please do not hesitate to contact us through this blog.   

I also want to post a picture of the plaque that will be posted outside of Jace’s Room.  Cher and I are very proud of this.


Lastly, We would like to thank our cousins Truby and Kendra McDougal for providing us with the floor plan and helping us bring our dream of Jace’s Room to life.  THANK YOU guys, we love ya’ll very much!

Again, thank you to everyone out there  for your continued prayers and support.  We hope to be back very soon with more updates.

Cher’s Procedure Update

Just wanted to thank all of you for your prayers.  Cher’s procedure went great.  Her doctor was very pleased.  She will visit him in 2 weeks for her follow up, and hopefully we’ll find out then, how long it will be before we can try again.

In the meantime, we will refocus on Jace’s Room and get that going again.  We only have about 3 1/2 months to reach our goal of $10,000 and to furnish the room.  Our goal is to have the room completed, and have the dedication on his birthday, May 10th, which this year falls on Mother’s Day.   We still have some ground to cover, but we know we will make it.

We still have Jace T-Shirts and brochures.  Please let us know if you know anyone that might be interested in either of them.

Thank all of you for your contributions and your continued prayers.

We love ya’ll!

1/13/09 Update

Jace’s Room total is now at $2525.00.  Thank all of you for your contributions.


Also, we found out yesterday that Cher has had a miscarriage.  We are extremely sad, but we know that Jace has a little brother or sister to play with in heaven.

Please remember Cher in your prayers.

On May 10, 2008, JR & Cher were blessed with a baby boy. After only 24 weeks and 1 day, Jace James McDougal came into this world weighing 1 lb. and stretching 10 3/4". He's had to fight right from the start and has taken on the task like a true McDougal. Stubborn, strong, and determined. We setup this blog to keep his family and friends updated on his journey. Please leave comments for JR and Cher to encourage them through out this battle. Also check back frequently for updates and how you can pray specifically for Jace and mom and dad.
