Help For Families
Team Jack works closely with other cancer-fighting organizations to support families as they navigate treatment. Below are a few resources to help your family find the best support and care for your child.
For a child battling a critical illness like brain cancer, Make-A-Wish® can be a game-changer. Wishes are more than just gifts or exciting events. Wishes bring joy and hope to everyone—wish kids, volunteers, donors, sponsors, medical professionals and communities.
Since its inception, Make-A-Wish® Nebraska has granted over 2,750 children’s wishes. And there are many more children who qualify and need to be referred. You can recruit your family and friends to ensure your child and other eligible children receive the power of a wish at the time they need it most. Click here to learn more and refer a child today.
