When a loved one passes away, our happy memories of family vacations, special holiday moments and shared time together become more treasured than ever. The sad reality is that cancer doesn’t just affect Mom or Dad—it becomes a life-changing force in the lives of many children who are left behind. This is why the Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation (JAJF) is such a vital ally for families affected by cancer.
Through the help of JAJF, those families are able to take a much-needed vacation and spend quality time together before it’s too late, helping children and their families create long-lasting memories. After all, the best part of memories is making them, and ultimately memories become our greatest inheritance.
On December 23 at 9 AM EST, watch CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood to see a special segment showcasing the spirit and the impact of this heartwarming foundation. Spread the word and tell your friends and family about this holiday program as well, so they also can learn about the importance of giving cancer-stricken families one experience of a lifetime.
So how can you help these families in need? Well, when you join The Getaway 2 Give Collection, you can designate half of your membership initiation fee directly to JAJF, and every time you stay at one of our amazing destinations, a portion of your stay also goes to the charity partner of your choice. You also can support this foundation by purchasing a Hurry Up and Live! T-shirt that benefits JAJF directly and helps to spread the message about the importance of living life to the fullest.
