The Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation was inspired by Jill and Jon Albert’s real life story. During Jill’s fight with Stage IV metastatic breast cancer, Jill, Jon and their two young children quickly realized that the disease was not just attacking her body, but it was affecting the entire family. The Alberts knew that strong memories of special times together would be both their kids’ greatest inheritance.
From this notion and inspiration, the Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation was born.
By creating WOWs for families across the country, the Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation is able to provide important timeouts from cancer to create positive, lasting memories for families while they still can.
The Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation has treated families from 44 states to WOWs in NYC, Nashville, San Diego, Tucson, Chicago, Sarasota, Orlando, Colorado, Hawaii, the Caribbean, Wyoming and DC among other destinations. Children facing the loss of their MOM and DAD enjoy VIP time together as a family at sporting events, concerts, award shows, beach and mountain resorts, dude ranches, attractions, theme parks and festivals.
Oncologists are now prescribing JAJF as part of the treatment protocol for the patients, caregiver and their children… the family.
“Words cannot express our extreme gratitude for the once in a lifetime family memory you provided us. Our New York experiences will definitely be cherished by each of us always. My brain cancer turned our world upside down, but the trip you provided us brought a respite for our family to regroup and have fun together. We so appreciate all that you did for us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
