My Story

Jack Sanders left us after 13 short years, but his spirit lives on in the lives of all of those he touched. His smile could light up the darkest room. His courage in the face of pain, uncertainty and the desire to do all the things which little boys love, is a lesson for all to pick yourself up when you least feel like it and do the next thing. He was a typical adolescent boy. He loved football, boobs, lizards and snakes. His magnetic personlaity made it possible to travel to Africa, dog sled in the Magdalen Islands, experience a harp seal expedition with National Geographic and surf in Waikiki. These were opportunities given to him and his devoted mother to experience a lifetime in just 13 years. What his friends expereinced through Jack is his fearlessness to live life and to reach out to others. At a time when most would be selfish, he was selfless. I know Jack would want you to be selfless and make possible, through your donation, the opporutuinty to impact the lives of other children who face cancer with great courage.
