Back to Families

Jon and Heidi,

We would like to thank the Jack & Jill Foundation for providing our family the opportunity to visit New York City. My wife, Micki, first developed breast cancer four years ago. The prognosis was good after she completed Chemo. But the cancer came back shortly after that. Hardly a day has gone by the last four years that cancer has not controlled our lives. This get a away trip to New York was a blessing. To be able to travel to New York with the children and get away for a weekend, it was the happiest that my wife has been in a long time. It’s a memory that my children and I will cherish forever.

The city highlights boat tour around the harbor and the city sights bus tour around New York were very entertaining and informative. We also had a great time at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum and the Broadway shows, The Drowsy Chaperone and the Blue Man Group.

Trump International Hotel & Tower was an amazing place to stay. The staff could not have been any kinder than what they were. The hotel concierge gave us gift certificates to eat dinner at the Fireman Hospitality Group restaurant Café Fiorello and lunch at the China Grill Management restaurant Hudson Cafeteria. Also, the Manhattan Limousine Company picked us up at the airport when we arrived and took us back to the airport when it was time to leave. They were great.

Words cannot express our gratitude. The service that your organization provides to the families of cancer patients is invaluable.

Thanks again,

Charlie Mangan
