Why We Fight

On December 27, 2013, two-year-old Jack Rollins was diagnosed with Stage 4, high risk, Neuroblastoma Cancer. 

The causes of childhood cancers are largely unknown, and for the most part they cannot be prevented. In children, cancer is the number one cause of death by disease. In fact, it is responsible for more deaths than all other diseases combined. Every day, 43 children are diagnosed with cancer and the average age of diagnosis is 6. Cancer affects all ethnic, gender, and socio-economic groups and more than 40,000 children undergo treatment for cancer each year.*

The JackStrong Mission

It was Jack's mission to visit other children in the hospital or in treatment to hold a hand, share a toy, or to support them saying, "Tough things make you stronger."

The JackStrong Foundation seeks to continue giving superhero strength to children fighting childhood cancer. Through community initiatives, we will raise funds to bring encouragement and bravery to families affected by this disease while also raising awareness. We will continue Jack's legacy with compassion and determination.
