Time is growing short and there are a number kids around the country who could use the Jack and Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation. On Monday, June 28th, I am playing in the Fore Jack and Jill Golf-a-Thon at the TPC at Craig Ranch in Mc Kinney and have pledged to suck it up in the Texas Heat to play 72 holes of golf in one day to raise need funds to support the Jack and Jill efforts. I hope you can see your way clear to make a donation through pledging to donate any amount for each hole I play…or a flat donation is great…it all goes to help in this great cause. Thanks for your help?
The Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation provides memory opportunities for children who have a Mom or Dad with late stage, limited life expectancy cancer. Thousands of Mom’s and Dad’s in their 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s with late stage cancer will die each year despite the advances in research. These parents are leaving behind grieving children.
The Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation provides families with an opportunity to capture indispensable memories together that will be both a break from the disease and a return to some normalcy now, as well as a legacy to cherish after the loss of their parent. The Foundation is able to positively impact the children and parents by providing them with strong, happy, recent memories that certainly provide comfort and support on the imminent grieving process.
As Jill Albert said just weeks before she passed away: "The children need a break… they just need a break… and so do the parents. This Foundation needs to continue. It must."
