A Network for Families Affected by Childhood Brain Cancer

Our mission is to fund a cure for childhood brain cancer. And a huge part of that mission is supporting the families who fight through childhood brain cancer every day. To offer a safe haven and support system for families, we created the Team Jack Family.

The Team Jack Family is a community of families affected by childhood brain cancer that you are welcome to join for support and friendship. Our Family started in Nebraska, and is now growing to include people from all over the country.

“We still lean on our Team Jack Family today. We met a lot of families during treatment and even more as the years go on. Nobody needs to fight alone.”

—Melissa Ostrander, mother of brain tumor survivor, Seth
