The "JuCan" movement started in 2012 when 6 year old, Julia (Ju) Cobb was diagnosed with a rare bone/tissue cancer called, Ewing's sarcoma. During her 2 year treatment, a positive Julia, focused on the first three letters in cancer....CAN! As a result, she was dubbed, "The JuCan!" She was alway's kind and encouraging to other children and families fighting cancer, and loved adults and childern alike. Ju started a toy drive during her stay at the Ronald McDonald House in Houston for less fortunate families. She shared a bright smile with strangers, making an impact on anyone she came in contact with. She was co-founder of the JuCan Foundation (Non-Profit 501c3), designed to reflect Ju's heart for hurting families fighting cancer.
In 5 years, the JuCan has morphed into an incredible foundation of love & support for Texas families and many other states.
While the cure for childhood cancer remains elusive, our pursuit to find a cure and help families fight throught it, is our mission.
