Team Jack Foundation

Team Jack Foundation

The Team Jack Foundation's mission is to raise money to fund impactful childhood brain cancer research and work to create national awareness for the disease.  To date, the Foundation has raised over $7.5 million for research. 

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 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 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 committed to fighting against childhood brain cancer and dedicated to educating people on the need for improved treatments and care.  

Thank you for your ongoing support of our ambitious goals.  Together, we can accomplish great things.   Through these gates ...

“I am not surprised at all to see Husker fans get behind a cause like this one. There is no bigger need and no tougher battle than the fight against pediatric brain cancer." -University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Director of Athletics, Bill Moos
