2018 Toy Drive/Adopt-a-Family

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.

Would you consider partnering with Julia’s foundation, to help with our Toy Drive/Adopt-a-Family? There are many ways your business, church, school, or family can help. You can help by being a collection site for the toy drive, you can adopt-a-family, you can volunteer your time in collecting/delivering toys, and you can donate online.

Thank you for your support and for helping to keep Julia’s love for GIVING…..ALIVE. For more information, or to join our cause, please call Jennifer Cobb at 713-413-7547 or email Jennifer.Cobb@JuCanFoundation.org.

Not So Hidden Mickey

Not So Hidden Mickey

Thank you to the staff, and members of Bellevue Baptist Church of Nashville of Nashville for hosting the Cobb Family & #JuCanFoundation this weekend! It was an honor to share the #JuliaCobb journey through #EwingsSarcoma and to celebrate the 2nd anniversary of our 4,000 mile #WalkAcrossAmerica for #ChildhoodCancerAwareness. We met many new friends and partners.

The Cobb kids shared many stats about childhood cancer. Their voices still remain the strongest help in educating the public on the paltry 3.8% funding for childhood cancer research. We remain diligent in our cause to be a hopeful (but loud) voice of change.

As many of you know, Julia LOVED Mickey Mouse!! The pic (bottom right) was taken at Give Kids the World when we arrived for her Make-A-Wish trip to Disney World in 2013. We had another “not so hidden Mickey” moment last night. We call this a “Ju Wink.” A woman we had never met and who had also never heard our story, walked up to us and said, “I’m not sure why, but God told me to give Jaxi this Mickey Mouse that I’ve had for 27 years……..” ❤️
