Team Jack Foundation
"Uplifting Athletes is proud to support Team Jack as they are leading the way in the fight for a cure. Together...We Are... Stronger!"
- Scott Shirley, Executive Director, Uplifting Athletes
The Team Jack Foundation was formed out of a grass roots movement which started in Atkinson, Nebraska. The predecessors to the Team Jack Foundation were the family and friends of Jack Hoffman. Now buoyed by a State and Nation's overwhelming support, Team Jack is committed to raising substantial money for the sole purpose of funding relevant pediatric brain cancer research.
Funding research that focuses on identifying brain cancer genetic mutations, and then treating those mutations with chemically engineered smart drugs, is a priority. The result will be kinder, gentler, and more successful treatment protocols. In addition to funding research to develop effective drug therapies, the Team Jack Foundation also funds neurosurgical research. A successful brain tumor resection helps set the stage in the fight against brain cancer. One of the best defenses against a brain tumor is a successful neurosurgery.
The Team Jack Foundation raises money to fund impactful pediatric brain cancer research and works to create national awareness for the disease. With an overall survival rate of just around 70%, there is a lot of work that needs to be done in this area. The diseases that we as a society spend resources on ultimately see improved treatments and survival rates. It is time that pediatric brain cancer becomes a member of that community.
The Team Jack Foundation is unlike other cancer foundations. Your investment in Team Jack is closely attenuated to direct, impactful research. No big CEO salaries. The CEO is a volunteer. Team Jack is comprised of hardworking Team members who are directly impacted by the disease that they are so incredibly committed to fighting against.
Thank you for your ongoing support of our ambitious goals. Together, we can accomplish great things. Through these gates ...
