TEAM JACK FOUNDATION

About the Team Jack Foundation

The Team Jack Foundation raises money to fund impactful pediatric brain cancer research and works to create national awareness for the disease. With an overall survival rate of just around 70%, there is a lot of work that needs to be done in this area. The diseases that we as a society spend resources on ultimately see improved treatments and survival rates.  It is time that pediatric brain cancer becomes a member of that community. 

Programs & Services Offered

The Team Jack Foundation focuses solely on raising funds and awareness for child brain cancer research. All funds raised, less operating expenses, go toward research. Annually, 4,600 children are diagnosed with brain cancer. Of those children, 30% will not survive the disease.  Brain cancer is the leading cancer cause of death in children. The Team Jack Foundation works to create national awareness for the disease and fund research to, not only find a cure, but discover new, kinder treatments for kids diagnosed. To date, Team Jack has raised over $4 million for child brain cancer research.
