Ways To Help

Become a FOJ Campus Representative


By becoming a FOJ Campus Representative, you will act as an Ambassador for Friends of Jaclyn. This will involve campus and community outreach including (but not limited to): notifying local and campus lead media groups about FOJ events on campus, reaching out to hospitals and social workers in your area, networking with businesses to gain corporate or small business connections and donations and supporting teams that have adoptees or are waiting to adopt a child.

We are looking for enthusiastic students who are passionate about our mission–improving the quality of life for children and their families battling pediatric brain tumors and other childhood cancers. By becoming a FOJ Campus Representative, you can help FOJ reach more children in need who may benefit from our programs.

Are you interested in having Denis or Jaclyn come speak at your school about the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation? Please contact Erin if you’d like more information!

Friends of Jaclyn Days

Friends of Jaclyn Days are a way for all of our teams to help raise pediatric brain tumor and childhood cancer awareness on a larger scale. These days are a perfect occasion to honor your adoptee in a fun, creative way.  Friends of Jaclyn Days include any awareness or fundraising event you may come up with. We have events ranging from FOJ Games to Talent Shows. Anything your team can do to raise awareness and/or fundraise will give another child living with a brain tumor the opportunity to get involved with our foundation! Below is a list of ideas; we are however open to anything your team may have up their sleeve.
