Spring Newsletter – April, 2019

Help Little Warriors: Shaddai, Johan, Carmen, Marcus, Alessandro & Anthony
ADVOCACY PROGRAM – URGENT DONATION REQUEST

Hello Friends of JJCCF,

As we enjoy the spring, please read the stories of these (6) children who need us. Just $5 counts and adds up to help Shaddai, Johan, Carmen, Marcus, Alessandro and Anthony fight advanced childhood cancer. Each of their families has received our financial assistance, but they need more. Our campaign goal is to raise $1,000 to cover lifeline support for each child. Your contribution will assure these families have food and keep a roof over their heads during trying times, but most importantly, they will know they are not alone.

With gratitude,
Sandra Muvdi, MBA, President/CEO
