What are the goals and priorities of Jane’s Fight Fund?

 

Our goal is to help families financially who are experiencing a cancer diagnosis. For every $2,500 in proceeds, this money will be donated to a qualifying family.​

To qualify for this gift, potential recipient must:

  1. Reside in Clinton, Essex, or Franklin County

  2. Obtain a doctor’s note with signature  proving that the potential recipient is indeed currently diagnosed with cancer.

 

What is the basic purpose of the gift?

This money is to be used to ease financial burdens and/or lift the spirits of families in need; the families are to use this gift as they see fit. Every family has different needs and we want them to use the money in their own unique way with zero stipulations.
