The “J” Foundation is grateful for our generous supporters for their continued donations. On this giving Tuesday, we would like to remember our founder Jamie Panetta. In 1998 Jamie hosted the first benefit dinner for Joseph Novelli. Joey was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. The goal for the benefit was to help insure his family financial stability for the limited time Joey had.
Twenty-two years later, we are still supporting children and their families struggling with life limiting illness. We are one of the only foundations in the area that is not tied to specific illnesses which allows us to help with a variety of diagnoses such as chronic lung disease, premature birth, spina bifada, neuro muscular disease, brain tumors, congenial heart disease, leukemia, and more.
We have supported families with handicap bathroom renovations, helped finance a handicap van, laptops, IPads, mortgages, rent, car payments, electric bills, insurance, funerals and more. It is only because of your continued support we were able to keep processing requests and helping families throughout this particularly challenging year.
Please consider a donation to The J Foundation today. We want to be able to continue our mission to provide the best quality of life for children and their families that have been faced with life-limiting illness. As always we, and the families we help, appreciate your generosity.
