The Friends of Jason Gould Foundation will hold its 8th annual fundraiser for leukemia and lymphoma research on Saturday, September 24th, 2016 at Mike & Denise's Pizzeria Bar & Grill, 1760 Farnsworth Ave, Aurora, IL. The event invitation can be found here.
Our mission is to raise money to support leukemia and lymphoma research in memory of Jason Gould who battled leukemia and a secondary viral related lymphoma after a bone marrow transplant. Our goal is to help bring cures so that others might survive these dreadful diseases.
Friends of Jason Gould Inc has chosen to raise funds to support the innovative work of a team of cancer researchers at The Ohio State University. One of these research scientists, Dr Rob Baiocchi has attended each of our previous fundraisers. He spoke about the importance of groups such as ours in raising money to support their efforts since funding in general has been cut dramatically in the last few years. He shared with us that with the addition a portion of our donations, he and his team were able to develop a new protocol for the treatment of the form of lymphoma that Jason developed. All of the patients treated were terminally ill and all responded to the new treatment and are cancer free!
We were elated to hear that our donations are being used by Dr. Rob with such incredible results and that he personally oversees every dollar that we raise. He will once again be attending and speaking at Jason’s Hogfan Party.
We are asking if you would consider supporting us in our efforts by giving a donation in any amount or by donating a raffle/silent auction item? We are now accepting pledges for items including much needed sports tickets, travel, and anything you are willing to donate!
If you or your business is interested in being a sponsor of the Hogfan event, we have listed the categories of sponsorship. Your donation will be listed in our event booklet and will be featured both on the Friends of Jason Gould website and the Friends of Jason Gould Facebook Page.
