Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation: $10 Donation to Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation

The Issue: Parents with Late-Stage Cancer

Nearly 600,000 Americans are expected to die from cancer in 2014, according to data from the American Cancer Society, and many will leave behind children. When young parents face a terminal illness, it can put an indescribable strain on their family, affecting both their financial resources and stress levels as they fight the disease. In the midst of such trauma, it becomes even more important that they share positive experiences with their children. These help to not only improve the patients' quality of life but to create lasting memories for the children losing their mom or dad.

The Campaign: Providing Getaways for Families with Cancer

All donations to this Grassroots campaign will be used by Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation to provide memorable experiences for families with a parent suffering from terminal cancer. For every $1,500 raised, the organization can sponsor a WOW! Experience—a four-day getaway—for one family. These experiences include transportation, plane tickets, hotel stays, activities, and meals.

Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation

For the supporters and oncologists involved with the Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation, "WOW" is not just a typical reaction to their efforts, but a symbol of the joy they bring to the families of parents with late-stage, limited-life-expectancy cancer. If you flip the word over, it of course spells "MOM"—and upending is something with which the organization’s client families are all too familiar. Each "WOW Experience" orchestrated by the foundation grants these families a fun-filled respite from cancer’s stronghold so they can enjoy a degree of normalcy while it’s still possible. For four days and three nights, families take an all-expenses-paid trip to destinations across the country, complete with airfare, accommodations, and meals. They might stay at an exotic resort in Hawaii or Arizona or a high-class hotel in New York City, attend concerts or sporting events, or visit a theme park—all to help children form lasting memories of their parents that they’ll cherish forever.

JAJF relies strictly on a referral process with its network of 209 oncologists across the country. To date, it’s matched WOW Experiences with more than 600 families in 44 states, thanks entirely to the 90% of donations that go directly to funding the experiences.
