Jessica June Children’s Cancer Foundation


MEDICAL BRANCH

 

The Tree of Life Foundation International, Inc. supports the Jessica June Children’s Cancer Foundation (JJCCF), a 501 (c)(3) non profit public charity that supports the South Florida community. The JJCCF was founded in 2004 in memory of Jessica June Eiler Muvdi, the only daughter of Sandra Muvdi after Jessica lost her life to cancer at the young age of 7. The JJCCF’s mission is to provide emergency financial assistance for children fighting cancer to ensure access to basic human necessities. The JJCCF serves the patients of the 15 partnered hospitals treating pediatric oncology in South Florida and advocates for and raises awareness of childhood cancer. 

Jessica’s story: Jessica arrived home from school on Monday September 29, 2003 complaining of cold like symptoms, she was taken to her pediatrician twice during that week. On Sunday October 5, she was taken to the hospital because she was thought to have Mononucleosis. That same day she was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (M5), an aggressive blood cancer and later that evening Jessica suffered a hemorrhage in her brain. Jessica became unconscious, and never woke up, precious Jessica remained unconscious for four days, and lost her life to this dreadful disease on October 9, 2003.

The Tree of Life Foundation International, Inc. held its 3rd annual “Walk In My Shoes” luncheon Sponsored by Holland America Line’s ms. Eurodam cruise ship benefitting Jessica June Children’s Cancer Foundation. Guests of honor included 6 year-old cancer hero Cara Dennis and her parents who received emergency financial assistance, hope, compassion and love from the JJCCF while fighting stage IV Neuroblastoma (nerve tissue cancer). Cara is in remission and enjoying a normal life attending elementary school. All proceeds from the luncheon were donated to help local families in crisis fighting childhood cancer.
