Being named a 2018 CNN HERO is a testament to JAJF’s “results” since 2006. I am honored and truly humbled. The CNN distinction has been a blessing toward the purpose and importance of JAJF.

As JAJF begins its fourteenth year of treating the families, not the cancer, I will never be bashful on behalf of these children who are losing their moms and dads to cancer at such a vulnerable time. Sadly, it remains too easy to receive prescriptions to treat these young families. Despite advances in cancer research, too many young moms and dads are not being saved by the next hope for a cure and are leaving behind their children. As the only organization of its kind, JAJF needs to be sustained. There is a need to keep fighting the fight; there is also a need to keep fighting for life… for family time.

On behalf of our wonderful, compassionate Board and fabulous small, but mighty team of Kerry, Jennifer and Lindsey, thank you for your continued belief in the importance of JAJF… in the importance of family.

May your 2019 be filled with family, laughter and smiles. 

May you create your own cherished memories.
