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.
Our AYJ Fund Dana-Farber Mini Golf Tournament was a huge success. It was a beautiful sunny day and we raised over $ 11,300 to directly support brain cancer research on Gliomatosis Cerebri being done at Dana-Farber by Dr Mark Kieran. Thanks to everyone who helped in any way. Thanks to our Gold Level Sponsors the Eileen Barrett Foundation, Mountain One, Mountain One True North, Whitney's Beverage Shop, Dion Money Management and Serrano Construction. Thanks to over 50 Silver Level Sponsors and so many who donated for our spectacular Chinese Auction, to all our volunteers including so many of Anna's friends, and our fabulous committee - we couldn't have done it without you!
