Charity of the Month - The Jack Morton Foundation
EatSmart fans will continue to select a Charity of the Month in 2016. Fans will submit short stories about the charity’s mission and why it’s meaningful to them. We began our Charity of the Month donations in 2011. We've selected The Jack Morton Foundation as our charity of the month for April. Our fan, Larry Reno, wrote to us,
Jack is my Grandson! He was three years old when he was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma. Jack received treatment at the Phoenix Children’s Hospital in Phoenix, AZ - they saved his life! The Jack Morton Foundation was founded by Jack’s Mom and my Daughter to raise awareness of Neuroblastoma and to raise funds for research that hopefully one day will lead to a cure. No child or family should have to experience the pain associated with childhood cancer - 100% of funds raised go directly to the hospital for research. In contrast, The American Cancer Society directs only $0.01, a penny, towards Childhood Cancer research for every dollar that is donated to the American Cancer Society!We appreciate any and all promotions and donations.
The mission of The Jack Morton Foundation:Our mission is to raise awareness and funds for Neuroblastoma cancer. We stand up for the little fighters because they can't do it for themselves.
