We are proud to announce our partnership with the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation. Friends of Jaclyn (FOJ) aims to improve the quality of life for children with pediatric brain tumors and other childhood cancers while spreading awareness about these diseases. FOJ was started by the Murphy family when Jaclyn was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor at age 9. Through chance events she was connected to a collegiate lacrosse team that “adopted” her as one of their own. Their love, support and friendship helped keep Jaclyn’s spirits high as she battled “the beast.” Jaclyn’s family saw the impact this relationship was having on her healing process and decided that they wanted to create this opportunity for any family who was faced with a cancer diagnosis.
We at FCG became connected with the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation a few years ago when the Hong Kong Junior National Golf team partnered with a CA based team to adopt a child in the area. Since then we have been working together to help more children and bring the spirit of community service and team work to families and teams in the area.
Leading up to our world series events you will hear more about Friends of Jaclyn and what you can do in your own community to help a child in need.
