The Need Is Real…
That’s how many children are diagnosed with cancer every year around the world. Help us send Jessie’s JoyJars to every one of them!
Thank you for donating!
Worldwide, 400,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year. And in the U.S., more children die of childhood cancer than any other disease—more than AIDS, asthma, cystic fibrosis, congenital anomalies and diabetes combined.

A collection of useful resources to help your family navigate the journey of childhood cancer.
Memory Canvases are a 30×30 wrapped canvas with a special personalized design to remember your courageous hero. Memory Canvases allow families the opportunity to select several words that best represent their courageous child. These special canvases are for families living in the United States, that have had a child move to heaven from cancer under the age of 18. Due to limited resources, for families living outside the United States we will make your customized Memory Canvas design and email it to you for your own printing.
Connect with our Family Resource Coordinator, Jana, to order your Memory Canvas today.
