The Inspiration

Our Story

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 the disease was not just attacking her body, but it was affecting the entire family. The Alberts knew 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 (JAJF) was born.

The Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation’s mission is treating families to WOW! Experiences®, giving children who will lose their Mom or Dad to cancer a timeout to create indispensable memories as a family… while they can.
