Hi Heidi

Justin and I wish to express our gratitude to all the amazing corporations who support the Jack and Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation. My husband was a 20 year survivor of a childhood cancer when he was very suddenly diagnosed with a brain tumor last September when our children were just three years old and three months old. It has been a difficult year of treatment with emotional battles and many more still to come. Many days our children have been there to help us laugh when we wanted to cry; however, they have also had to spend much time away from mommy and daddy or had to experience our stress. Our WOW! Experience through the Jack and Jill Foundation allowed us to give some time back to our now four year old daughter. She loved Sesame Place and getting to meet the characters one on one. The Sheraton could not have been more welcoming, comfortable or spacious. The nightlight and pillow pet gifts were so thoughtful and so perfect. The service at Taste was excellent, and the meals divine! One of the highlights of the trip for my husband was riding the Duck. Having been a private pilot for many years, he has seen much of our country, but Philly was one stop he had never had the time to take in. Thank you so much to all who made our vacation possible and virtually stress free. You may feel like you just gave money to some group, but in truth you gave a little girl a memory of a trip with her father that she will treasure forever and be able to share with her brother. Priceless.

Thank you,
The Wade Family

Thanks Heidi for passing this along!
