Would you recommend Friends of Jaclyn?

by Erica D. (January 7, 2014)
It is important that children with brain tumors have a solid support group. The Friends of Jaclyn organization not only provides a support group for these children, but it provides them with a team and maybe even a love for sports. This gives them another reason to live and push through each day! The bond between teams is very special and one that may be capable of saving a child in need.
