Santa has made his delivery this year to the MD Anderson Children's Cancer Hospital, but you can still donate online to help make Christmas possible for one of our many JuCan families in cancer treatment.
How it Started
The JuCan Foundation Annual Toy Drive is patterned after 8 yr old Julia Cobb’s own heart. It began in 2012 when she hand-delivered toys that she collected and shopped for during her treatment for bone cancer. Ju wanted every child to have a great Christmas and experience the magic of toys under the tree. What started as just a small toy collections of toys in 2012, has grown to JuCan, and its partners collecting over 125,000 toys in Greater Houston over 8 years. Please help carry on Julia Cobb’s legacy of giving to make our 9th year a giant success for families in cancer treatment. SHARE THE HOPE OF CHRISTMAS
Who it Benefits
Kids & Families in Cancer Treatment
The toy drive benefits the MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital (Santa’s Workshop) & The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center in Houston, Texas.
In addition to the toy drive, JuCan, through its generous partners, adopts families in cancer treatment each year in cancer treatment. Families are nominated to our foundation through hospitals and other local organizations. JuCan works to connect these families with a sponsor. Please complete the online application if you are interested in sponsoring a family or donating an “In-Kind” gift.
