The mission of the AYJ Fund is to bring smiles to kids with cancer, to keep them connected to friends and school through technology, and to support the research of Gliomatosis Cerebri and other brain cancers to find the cures.
The fund is dedicated to Anna Yan Ji Arabia who bravely lived with Gliomatosis Cerebri for three and a half years, was treated with the best medical care available at the Jimmy Fund Clinic at Dana Farber, and became and angel at 16 years old on Valentines Day 2013, filled with love and grace.

Thanks to everyone who helped make our AYJ Fund Holiday Backpack program such a great success. We filled 150 backpacks with fun items and delivered them to a number of children’s cancer treatment centers.
We are excited to be participating in the 2nd International GC Conference. This conference brings together 36 invited NeuroOncologists MDs and PhD researchers to work together and share information and research on this rare brain cancer. 18 Family members who have lost loved ones will meet to join forces to fight so others have a fighting chance. AYJ Fund is grateful to all of our supporters to make our sponsorship of this conference possible. This will make a difference! Thanks to Kathy Warren MD of NIH (and graduate of MCLA!) for hosting this important event.
