“Thanks to Intero Foundation’s support, Jacob’s Heart is providing essential, daily support to 350 seriously ill children and 1,600 of thier family members. Your contribution has helped us to offer vital services to families, including housing, food, and emotional support, that have helped to build healther and more resilient lifestyles for these families.

Your gift has been instrumental in improving bicultural, equitable access to supportive service for children with cancer and their families. We’ve attached some of our impact photos to experience it yourself. We are deeply grateful for your kindness and generosity. I also included a link to a short video from a recent tenn outing; these monthly groups are a lifeline for teens, all of whom share the impact of cancer and can relate to one another, which is difficult with others.”
