The Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation is a national resource providing WOW! Experiences for children and families who have a Mom or Dad with late stage, limited life expectancy cancer. JAJF'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."
A WOW! Experience is a unique, memorable getaway that allows the family to enjoy time with each other, away from their new normal of living with the dire circumstances of late stage cancer. Families have been sent to enjoy time together on exciting WOWs including: luxury beach resort stays, visits to big cities, music concerts, The Grammys, The Oscars, American Idol, The X-Games, sporting events, cruises, theme parks and attractions, and even tours of the White House. We are filling a void in the available support resources for late stage cancer patients by addressing an underserved, overlooked population. JAJF is providing positive, uplifting experiences for families to enjoy and helping them create lasting, cherished memories together.
