About the Team Jack Foundation
The Team Jack Foundation’s mission is to raise research funds and awareness for pediatric brain cancer. Childhood brain cancer affects nearly 4,600 children each year and is the leading cancer cause of death in children. Each year less than four percent of U.S. federal funding is solely dedicated to childhood cancer research, with even less spent on child brain cancer research.
The Team Jack Foundation has raised over $7.5 million for pediatric brain cancer research and has invested in nine research projects nationally including a $6.5 million commitment to the University of Nebraska Medical Center & Children’s Hospital & Medical Center in Omaha, NE. The Foundation is working with world renowned researchers, directly, to develop relevant and impactful research initiatives.
