A Message from Founder Jon Albert
Being named a CNN HERO is a testament to JAJF’s measurable and meaningful impact/“results” since 2006. I am honored and truly humbled. The CNN distinction has been a blessing toward the purpose and importance of JAJF.
As JAJF begins its sixteenth year of treating the families, not the cancer, I/we will never be bashful on behalf of these children who are losing their moms and dads to cancer at such a vulnerable time. Sadly, it remains too easy to receive prescriptions to treat these young families. Despite advances in cancer research, too many young moms and dads are not being saved by the next hope for a cure and are leaving behind their children. As the only organization of its kind, JAJF needs to be sustained. There is a need to keep fighting the fight; there is also a need to keep fighting for life… for family time.
On behalf of our wonderful, compassionate Board and fabulous small, but mighty (long time) team of Kerry, Jennifer and Lindsey, thank you for your continued belief in the importance of JAJF… in the importance of family.
May you continue to create your own cherished family memories.
JAJF helps families to create lasting and inheritable memories that can only be measured by the families themselves.
Meet our family circle, the families who have been prescribed smiles, joy and fun family memories. These moments are the best gift—and medicine—leaving families with cherished memories to inherit.Our Family Circle
