Sadly & horribly (understatements of the century), there are times when the chemo doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do or when a cancer is found too late and there is little hope of a cure.  In such instances, the Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation helps send families on dream vacations to help take their minds off their troubles and create lasting family memories.  Vacations can include many things such as walking down the Red Carpet at the Emmys to meet & greet with celebrities; going to Disney World, Six Flags, Sea World or on a cruise; meeting a favorite football team; etc.

 

With that said, Jack & Jill focuses on children who have a parent dying of cancer.  Families in need must be referred to the Foundation by their treating oncologist as well as:

  • Have late stage limited life expectancy cancer;
  • Have at least one (1) child age between the ages of three (3) and eighteen (18) – Only one child must meet the minimum age requirement;
  • Have a life expectancy more than two (2) months
  • Have not participated in an any adult dream, wish or any other similar program

For more information on these programs, click HERE or contact Heidi Cohen at 678-523-1001.  What an incredible program the Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation is has created for families.  Cancer can rob you of your loved one, but it can not steal your memories of them.
