I am Camden's mom, Jenny. Before Camden was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma-February 9, 2007-I knew of cancer, but never really knew of childhood cancer; I certainly didn't know of St Jude Children's Research Hospital. Once my world became about childhood cancer it was shocking and frustrating for me to learn that the financial support and public awareness of pediatric cancer was lacking. I decided once my son, Camden, passed away September 29, 2008 at age 3 that I had to redirect my focus; do my best to try and keep his story alive by bringing awareness through raising money to support childhood cancer research. My own personal experience with pediatric cancer as well as my everyday role as a mother to my son, Jaden offers valuable insight into exactly what a pediatric cancer family needs, feels and experiences. Along with dedicating any spare time to my now 11year old, Jaden; I also work full-time for an Abstract company.
By profession Joy is a Dental Assistant. Joy is also a mother of 2 young boys (Drew and Cole)and a daughter (Savanna). She is the CFO of her home and is very dedicated to her family and the foundation. Joy brings lots of knowledge to the board. Joy is the one who is by Jenny's side most days and collaborates on most foundation business. She joined the foundation because of her friend who lost her son and wanted to make a difference in this world to honor him. Together we are making a difference in others lives everyday. What an amazing group of women who have come together to fight childhood cancer. Joy is honored to be able to honor Camden and keep his story alive while helping others!!

One way we sponsor the children is by sending them Care Packages like the one below:
We of course want to fund research to CURE pediatric brain tumors, but researching treatment options for children with fewer side effects that establish a better quality of life is equally important.
Survivors of brain tumors often suffer from long term side effects of their chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
An important break through in helping limit those long term side effects is proton radiation therapy. Protons target the tumor…
