I Back Jack Foundation 
        Backing Research                    Inspiring Hope                         Defeating  Cancer
" Without continual growth and progress, such 
words  as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning."  
- Benjamin Franklin

The I Back Jack Foundation remains strong and steadfast in supporting the development of new clinical trials positively impacting the lives of children fighting cancer.  We continue to grow, make progress, inspire hope, and move toward a day when beating cancer will be within our reach.

As the last school bell rings and summer begins, we have no desire to see summer slip by any faster than it does already.  But we are counting down to September and the most important awareness month of the year for childhood cancer.  We are excited about the 7th Annual Back to School event on September 14th.  If you haven't already, mark your calendar and save the date.  The silent and live auction items are spectacular!  We guarantee you will not be disappointed.  

Sponsorship opportunities are still available, but you need to act fast to have your company logo on the invitation! The print deadline is June 15th.   Know that your participation helps ensure our children have the opportunity to grow healthy and happy.

Send in your sponsorship and help us GROW!

 Annie is AMAZING

On May 26, Annie was in Boston being honored as one of "The 100 Everyday Amazing" individuals who are working to inspire others in the fight against cancer.

We couldn't be more proud of Annie and her tireless efforts to turn the world gold in September helping every child, everywhere.  We also give her amazing efforts "two thumbs up!"

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 wish.  Or consider the Foundation for wedding, anniversary, memorials or other celebratory gift ideas.  Be creative.  Think outside the box and know that every dollar counts.
