"Every thought plants a seed to one of your actions. Every action, good or bad, will yield a consequence.  The person who takes good steps every day, cannot help but reap a harvest of awesome results. "  
- Robin Sharma

The I Back Jack Foundation is grateful for the supporters who continue to take "good steps" to make a difference. With your support we will continue to grow, make progress, inspire hope, and move toward a day when beating cancer will be within our reach.

Last month, President Barack Obama announced his nominations to key Administration posts.  Dr. Peter Adamson was appointed to the National Cancer Advisory Board.  Dr. Adamson is attending physician in the Division of Oncology at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), a position he has held since 1999.  Dr. Adamson has been Chair of the Children's Oncology Group, supported by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), since 2010.  It is wonderful progress and very exciting news to have a childhood cancer representative on the Advisory Board.  The entire childhood cancer community is celebrating this recognition of childhood cancer as a crucial health focus. Also important to note, Dr. Adamson is the G9 Project Advisor having met Annie Bartosz in 2013 and offering his help with her wonderful work.
The I Back Jack Foundation asks that you keep Brooke Hester's family in your thoughts and prayers as she found her ultimate cure and joined Jack as a golden angel just two weeks ago. She will forever beautifully grace the G9 Video Book and continue to inspire so many with Brooke's Blossoming Hope Foundation. Our mission to back research, inspire hope, and defeat childhood cancer will continue for Brooke and all the children who will forever inspire us and push us to make a difference.

In loving memory of Brooke Elizabeth Hester, age 8.

There are many ways to get involved to help the Foundation continue to offer hope to children and their families fighting cancer.  Is your child about to celebrate a birthday?  Let's say your child is turning 8. Ask everyone for an $8 donation for the I Back Jack Foundation or come up with your own inspiring idea. Also, consider the Foundation for memorials, wedding, anniversary or other celebratory gift ideas.  Be creative. Think outside the box and know that every dollar counts.
