Groovy Kind of Love

Groovy Kind of Love

Groovy Kind of Love

Phil Collins sang about this, but I think it’s more fun to do it! Each day, the Cobb family and Team ‪#‎JuCan‬ make it a goal to share a little “groovy love” with another person. Love isn’t love until you give it away. It was the “Julia Cobb” way to do small acts of kindness, but with a great big heart! Since she has passed, we continue to make extraordinary connections that remind us that Ju’s “groovy” love remains close by!

While we were eating at Denny’s over Christmas, we asked the Manager, Harry, about participating in our JuCan Toy Drive for The MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital. As we shared, tears began to flow from his eyes. I instantly sensed the look in his eye, and the heaviness in his heart. I knew this look! I live with this heaviness. I knew what he was about to say.

Tearfully, Harry began to explain that he lost his 14 year old son, Khalid, to Osteosarcoma about 9 months ago. He shared several beautiful memories about his son and how he loved Buffalo Wild Wings! Harry often found himself at BWW, grabbing a quick takeout, and rushing back to make the delivery at his bedside (hopefully before he changed his mind). When you have a child in cancer treatment, you’ll drive anywhere, day or night, just to find one morsel they “might” eat! We spent the next hour swapping tears and sharing funny memories about our kids.

We retuned to Denny’s recently with a Valentine for Harry. We have become close friends and love to see his beautiful, Louis Armstrong, “what a wonderful world” smile! Jaxi made the special presentation, including a “Buffalo Wild Wing” gift card! I told Harry to go make a new memory in Khalid’s honor!
Our thanks to the special lady who made this gift card happen on behalf of the JuCan Foundation. We LOVE sharing groovy JuCan love with families. I hope you will continue to support our efforts at, as there is a great need among families fighting cancer and/or the memory of it.



It’s Monday! And thank God for it! Share some groovy love this week! -Jonathan Cobb
#JuCan do all things!

“When I’m feelin’ blue
All I have to do is take a look at you
Then I’m not so blue
When you’re close to me
I can feel your heart beat
I can hear you breathing in my ear

It’s a JuCan Christmas for 6 Houston Families

It’s a JuCan Christmas for 6 Houston Families

This has been one of the most amazing Christmases ever for the JuCan Foundation! This year, JuCan partnered with 25 area businesses and families in collecting a record 7,000 toys for our 4th Annual Toy Drive for The MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital. The response from our Houston friends was overwhelming! Thank you!

In addition to our toy drive, we partnered with businesses this year who helped the JuCan Foundation to provide Christmas to 6 families in the Houston area. This week we had the joy of being Elves and accompaning Mr. and Mrs. Clause to make the Santa drops (enjoy the pics). Thank you Santa & Mrs. Clause for graciously taking time from the North Pole to join us.

Our thanks to the following businesses and people:

1) Abacus Plumbing and Air Conditioning
2) Home Depot-Porter
3) Home Depot- Humble
4) Home Depot Porter Merchandising Team
5) Gartz, Weinman, Randy, Prangle Families
6) Taylor Family
7) JuCan Birmingham/Springville Chapter

We would like to especially thank Mike Myers at Abacus and Angela Thorndyke at Home Depot in Porter for coordinating our efforts with their companies. You guys are amazing and JuCan is grateful to you for your time and commitment.
What started in 2012 with Julia Cobb hand delivering some toys to MD Anderson has morphed into an enormous blessing for the city of Houston and beyond. Her JuCAN spirit continues to touch hearts and impact lives.
Our prayers remain with these families and we ask ‪#‎TeamJuCan‬ to join us in praying. Some have lost loved ones to cancer, and some continue in the fight looking for a cure.
