Jaimeson Jones Memorial Scholarship Has Re-Branded & Is Also Seeking Donations To Create PBS Documentary


First, they have rebranded to more-fully reflect their mission, which includes their passion for saving lives by educating about testicular cancer.  Welcome to the newly-minted Family Jewels Foundation!

Second, they have been invited to share in a thrilling venture with Praxis Media Group:  a PBS documentary about the never-told story of Dr. Larry Einhorn (whom they just like to call "God"), who cured testicular cancer in the early 1970s and who gave them years with Jaimeson, after his initial diagnosis in 2005, that they never would have had.  Before Dr. Einhorn's hard work and discovery, testicular cancer was a death sentence.  Now it is 95-98% curable.

Please help ensure that this lifesaving production comes to fruition, by going to the production's GoFundMe page and donating today! Any amount you can donate is very much appreciated!
