Julia Cobb – JuCan Foundation
Toy Drive & Adopt-a-Family
Last year, Team JuCan friends and partners collected and delivered more than 13,000+ toys to the MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital in Houston, Texas.
6 yr. old, Julia Cobb, started this toy drive in 2012 while in treatment at MD Anderson for a rare bone cancer called, Ewing’s sarcoma. Julia had a huge heart for other children and families around her in a similar situation, and she wanted to make sure that the real meaning of Christmas was delivered to each one. That message was, “love isn’t love, until you give it away.” Julia could often be found, pushing a chemo pole, visiting other children and adults in the hospital, taking time to pray and deliver that message of LOVE to everyone she met. Although Julia passed away in 2013, her message of love & hope remains ALIVE through her Toy Drive.
In addition to the toy drive (benefiting The MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital), JuCan friends and partners, through its, “Adopt-a-Family Program,” granted the Christmas Wish lists of 10 families in Greater Houston last year. A cancer is diagnosis is devastating on many levels, and the financial hardship that comes with that diagnosis, is unbearable at times. JuCan steps in during Christmas to help make dreams come TRUE. However, this is not possible without your generosity. We have many families THIS YEAR that are still in need of a sponsor.
