The Jaymie Jamison Foundation for Hope is committed to enhancing the lives of women and families that have been affected by gynecological cancers. The Jaymie Jamison Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) organization and donations help provide awareness, prevention and detection of Gynecological Cancers.
In America 34% of women diagnosed with a Gynecologic Cancer will not survive! Yet these cancers can potentially be prevented, detected and treated.
Many times all it takes to prevent these tragedies is an annual gynecological health screening, however, many women cannot afford these services due to increased healthcare costs. For this reason, we have made it one of our primary goals to provide grants for under or uninsured women to receive these life saving screenings. By teaming up with local clinics and health care professionals, we were able to provide 200 life-saving screenings in 2012 at no cost to the patients. In 2013, we would like to see that number increase to well above 500.
The foundation was initially the idea of Hope Jamison (14 years old). With her mother’s support they decided to share their story in the hope that it would make other women aware of these deadly cancers. Jaymie was a 34 year old wife and mother of four beautiful children when she was diagnosed with cervical cancer. Within ten months she lost her battle with the disease, and was taken from her family. Hope and her siblings watched their mom fight hard for her life. While losing Jaymie has been devastating, they could not bear the thought of this happening to other families. In 2011, they found a way to honor their mother while simultaneously saving lives. Jaymie fought her cancer with strength, courage and hope and this foundation was created to continue this fight for all women.
In 2013, we will be hosting several awareness and fundraising projects. In addition to our annual Panties across the Bridge, Jaymie’s Rockin’ Run for Hope 5k Race and Teal off to Cancer Golf Scramble, we are hosting the 1st Annual Whispers of Hope Gala. At this event we will be honoring and celebrating the lives of women, their families, and the medical community that lead the battle against gynecological cancers every single day.
Our goals for these events are to bring awareness to gynecologic cancers and raise funds to help further our mission. We are asking you to join forces with The Jaymie Jamison Foundation for Hope in our battle against gynecologic cancers by making a charitable donation or by sponsoring one of our upcoming events. Please see the enclosed sponsorship information.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and support. We look forward to partnering with you to prevent these cancers from affecting any more families. Help us honor Jaymie by helping others prevent such tragedies.
