Why we exist....
No family is ever prepared to have a child with cancer.
Just-In-Time Neuroblastoma Foundation, Inc. was inspired by a boy named Justin. Justin was only three and a half years old when he was diagnosed with
Neuroblastoma. From his initial diagnosis, Justin's family struggled to find information not only on the disease itself, but also on finding information on where to
turn to and how to coordinate much needed blood bank donations, fundraising ideas to offset the financial burdens of medical treatment and unpaid time off work
and information on treatment options and national treatment facilities specializing in Neuroblastoma such as St. Jude's and Sloan's Kettering. Justin's family
was extremely fortunate in that they had a large extended network of family and friends who helped them hold silent auctions and bake sales to help with the
financial burdens in the months to come; who had time to help research treatment options and national facilities in the event Justin would need to receive
treatment outside of Denver; and who were able to contribute time and financial donations. Not every parent of a child with cancer is that fortunate. Therefore,
after Justin had been cancer free for 15 months, Justin's family organized the Just-In-Time Neuroblastoma Foundation, Inc., hoping it might come "just in time" to
help out another family undergoing the same or similar illness.
