Experiences…..a timeout together as a family away from their late-stage cancer to fabulous destinations (including our ranches) to create cherished, lasting memories…while they can. Oncologists now “prescribe” JAJF as part of the treatment protocol for the patient, the spouse, and their children…the family together which is extraordinary. Oncologists have validated the medicinal impact and the power of laughter and smiles–of positive, fun family time together. As the only organization of its kind serving this overlooked population, there is a need to keep fighting the fight; there is also a need to keep fighting for cherished family time for these young parents who just won’t be saved by the next wonder drug or trial. JAJF is supported by individual donors who make WOW! Experiences® possible. To learn more, “like” the “Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation” on Facebook or visit the JAJF website at www.jajf.org Jon Albert, Founder; was honored as the 2010 Humanitarian of the Year in a ceremony sponsored by American Airlines and in 2011 as the Avis National Spirit recipient at Yankee Stadium.
