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.
We are so pleased that our AYJ Fund Connections pilot program to distribute iPad Minis to teens at Dana-Farber is a great success! We are thrilled to be partnering with HopecamInc, another non profit organization to supply iPad Minis to teens undergoing cancer treatment who are not able to attend school. This program connects them to their friends and with school through technology. AYJ Fund purchases the equipment and Hopecam provides the technological assistance and connections needed to make this so successful in helping with the isolation felt by kids who cannot attend school due to treatment. Check out Hopecam at www.Hopecam.orgWe have had many donations directed to the purchase of additional iPad Minis to help reach more kids.
