Treating the

Families,

not the cancer.

Celebrating Smiles and Cherished Memories all across the country since 2006: The Best Part Of Memories Is Making Them!®

HELP US WOW!

JAJF’s mission is “Treating families to WOW! Experiences®, giving children who will lose their Mom or Dad to cancer a timeout to create indispensable memories as a family… while they can."
WOW! Experiences®
 

A WOW! Experience is what JAJF does when an entire family has been turned upside down due to the stresses of late stage cancer. Following an Oncologist’s prescription, JAJF sends families on a memory-making, fun trip together to resorts and destinations nationwide.
