When life is wrapped around impending loss, it can be hard to think about things that make you stop, laugh and have fun. Laughter is truly medicine, however. In fact, it lowers stress, increases serotonin (feel good hormone) in the brain, helps the immune system function better, and makes people more comfortable around one another. The Jack and Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation understands those benefits in an incredibly unique way. Their mission is to provide families with opportunities to enjoy beaches, sunsets, sports, music and roller coasters – while head-on in the fight with late-stage cancer.
Jon Albert knows first-hand about the devastation cancer causes. After losing his wife the week before Thanksgiving in 2006, Jon persevered on the path they had paved together to treat families to a WOW! experience. Oncologists now prescribe his Jack and Jill LateStage Cancer Foundation (JAJF) to families, as part of the treatment protocol. There have been amazing advances in cancer; yet, thousands of children every year still lose a parent to the disease. Jon recognizes that cancer doesn’t just strike the patient – it strikes the whole family.
Jon Albert’s mantra is a sobering one: It should not take a terminal diagnosis for us to Hurry up and Live!
For 9 years, his foundation has been treating the families – not the cancer. More than 900 families in 45 states have benefited from the WOW! experiences. National in-kind partners include Shutterfly,The Coca-Cola Company, United Airlines, Avis/Budget, Ritz Carlton, and an army of others. JAJF has garnered attention from NBC Sunday Night Football, The Today Show, CBS, CNN, NBC, USA Today and the Wall Street Journal.

A note from Bri:
"After completing my Bachelor and Master degrees in fashion design, I began to truly recognize how many women struggle to find quality clothing that speaks to their hearts and inspires their lives. I watched and listened as the women around me expressed their despair about fashion and their wardrobes. It was out of this frustration that I created the Bri Seeley fashion label ."
Now Bri has created the Inspirational Woman Project as well. She's live with Jill to share about Fashion, inspiring and more.
