BENEFITING: Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation Inc
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. As the American Cancer Society estimates, more than 500,000 Moms and Dads in their 20's, 30's, and 40's with late stage cancer will die each year, despite the advances in research. These parents are leaving behind grieving children. As the national Oncology community admits, cancer is a diagnosis attacking the entire family. It shatters promises, dreams, hopes and aspirations. By creating WOW! Experiences for families across the country, the Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation is able to provide important timeouts from cancer to create positive, healing, lasting memories together as a family… while they can. A WOW! Experience is a unique, memorable getaway that allows the family to enjoy time with each other... while they can away from their new normal of living with the dire circumstances of late stage cancer.
Jack & Jill has sent families all over the nation and beyond to resorts, big cities, concerts, award shows, ball games, cruises, VIP tours, and more indispensible, wonderful experiences.
WOW! Experiences offer parents a timeout from the inevitable outlook of leaving behind their children and give the children a chance to have FUN, positive time as a family instead of the dread they face of losing their Mom or Dad.
When Mom or Dad dies prematurely,Memories become our greatest inheritance.
