ALL children, fighting
ALL cancers, in
ALL regions of the country.

Please help Annie continue to raise awareness of the need for increased resources for childhood cancer research.  Say something.  Do something. Wear something gold. Post something.  Tweet something.

Think Outside The Box
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.
