What’s on FacebookFriends of Jaclyn Foundation shared a post.Friends of Jaclyn FoundationBrain tumors in children are not like brain tumors in adults. They cannot be treated the same. Pediatric brain tumors require specialized research and treatments. Research specifically targeted towards pediatric brain tumors is critical in saving lives and improving the quality of life for children.

She was all smiles meeting her teammates! This special team and Coach Brdarski have been waiting 5 years on our standby teams list to adopt a child. They were patient and immediately responded with a million yeses when told there was a girl and asked if they were still interested. Coach Brdarski and team welcomed Rory with so much love, team gear, a letter of intent, and a delicious cookie cake! The St. Bonaventure Women’s Soccer team is proof that being patient and waiting results in incredible things. We are very proud to officially welcome the Bonnies Women’s Soccer team and their awesome adoptee, Rory, into our FOJ Family! #FOJPride

Supporters, volunteers, teams, families, and the community joined us to honor and remember the children and loved ones who gained their angel wings to cancer. To commemorate the walk, there was a beautiful dove release by White Dove Release Wings and Memories.
Our speakers were moving and inspiring. Brain tumor survivor and FOJ teammate, Eliza Williams, shared her FOJ journey and the important affect a team has on the quality of life of a child battling cancer. The Marist Sirens a cappella group sang to help us beautifully remember those who are no longer with us. Bagpipers from the Hudson Highlands Pipe Band led us to the middle of the bridge where we had a moment of silence and looked at the names of FOJ's children who gained their wings. Each child was represented by a paper dove handcrafted by FOJ volunteers and a metal plaque fabricated by students at Ulster BOCES. Instructor, Tim Priest, alongside Ulster BOCES students presented FOJ with a new plaque containing the names of our most recent angels.
We are very thankful to everyone who attended, walked, donated, and helped on this special day. We would not be able to do this without our amazing community of supporters. Thank you for never forgetting these special children and loved ones!
