Dear Jack Foundation
The Dear Jack Foundation provides impactful programming that directly benefits adolescents and young adults (AYA) diagnosed with cancer in order to improve their quality of life and create positive health outcomes from treatment to survivorship for patients and their families.
Through programs and strategic partnerships, Dear Jack addresses the physical and emotional needs of AYA cancer patients, survivors and their families. One-on-one patient support and wellness programs allow the Dear Jack Foundation to empower patients, survivors and their caregivers in their healing and to provide assurance that they are not alone in their cancer journey.
ReSurge is a global humanitarian organization providing free reconstructive surgeries to adults and children in 19-low-income countries. Their model is 3-fold 1. Provide free direct care to patients such as wound coverage, cleft and palate repair, hand extremity trauma care, and burn and cancer reconstruction. 2. Provide mentoring and training to early-career local medical professionals via in-person and virtual training. They’ve measured the impact of this training and found that by training just one surgeon in a low-income country, an average of 9,000 patients will gain access to surgical care. Over their lifetimes, these surgeons will train dozens of others—resulting in a multiplier effect and a multigenerational approach towards long-term sustainability. 3. ReSurge also funds dedicated in-country local surgeons who perform these life-changing surgeries when our teams are not there.
Bright Spot Network
"The Bright Spot Network has created a needed space for parents with cancer to receive compassionate and meaningful support. Having cancer while raising small children comes with very unique challenges, that often are not addressed. Bright Spot not only names these challenges, but also provides concrete support that addresses day-to-day struggles. Many of my patients have shared that Bright Spot is the first place they turned where they really felt understood and did not need to explain themselves. I am so grateful for Bright Spot and will continue to share information about this amazing program with patients and colleagues.”
