When a parent has late-stage cancer with limited life expectancy, everyone wants to rewrite the expected ending. The doctors and nurses, the parent with cancer, the family's loved ones and especially the children want to make it "all better."
The Jack and Jill Foundation (JAJF) can't cure cancer. But it can give families a vacation from cancer to create joyful memories that last a lifetime. To see how, watch Ann Curry's 5-minute interview with JAJF's founders, Jon and Jill Albert, and one grateful family: TODAY Show feature on Jack & Jill
The Albert family knows that even though cancer is always bad, family members don't have to feel bad all the time. And they know that when a parent dies, memories keep the parent alive in the hearts of the children.
Thank you, Jon and Jill Albert, for your wisdom and efforts to do something tangible to help families heal.
