AYJ Fund's SMILES APPLICATION is available at the bottom of this page.



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 an angel at 16 years old on Valentines Day 2013, filled with love and grace.


AYJ Fund's CONNECTIONS Program provides tablets and laptops to keep kids connected to school, friends and family



AYJ Fund's CURES Program funds research to identify effective treatments for children with gliomatosis cerebri,(GC) a brain cancer. We are currently funding a $1million project at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute at the Filbin Lab and an international GC Project led by the Institute of Cancer Research in London.

AYJ Fund purchased 3 Gaming Karts for the Jimmy Fund Clinic at Dana-Farber in Boston and 1 GO Kart for the clinic at Weill Cornell Medicine. 

These GO Karts help distract children and provide a fun activity during long days of treatment and testing.
