Team Jack Heroes: The Reasons We Fight

 

At Team Jack, we push every day to raise funds and awareness for childhood brain cancer. We fight for all the families whose lives are changed forever because of this disease. And we fight for the children who battle every day. For them, we fight for a future without childhood brain cancer. Get to know the children and families we fight for—our heroes. All donations made in honor of a Team Jack Hero will help Team Jack fund impactful childhood brain cancer research to improve treatments for children worldwide.
