Message From Our Founder
Courtney Jones Care and Cure Foundation provides support to children and their families while receiving treatment for cancer and blood disorders.
The Foundation partners with participating Northeast Ohio pediatric oncology/hematology medical professionals to provide gifts, experiences, and resources throughout the year, to children in treatment for their cancer diagnosis.
The little things that can brighten a child's day are things that encourage them to fight cancer, one day at a time. Birthday presents, activities, arts and crafts, gift cards, access to cherished experiences, games, clothing, restaurant cards, and sports activities help with many emotional and financial burdens from frequent and/or long-term hospital visits.
Children have enough to think about while in treatment. Let's make some of their thoughts happy ones! Together, we can create moments that children can escape thoughts of chemotherapy, surgery, injections, pain, radiation, isolation, limited mobility, medication, transfusion, infusions, sadness, or lengthy hospital stays.
The Foundation funds cancer research with a focus on pediatric cancer treatment and cures. Children deserve to know that we are not only hoping for a cure, we are investing in those cures. There is so much work to do in bridging the gap between available effective treatments and the resources needed to develop and research those treatments.
Courtney's mission to care for children and invest in pediatric cancer treatments, therapies, and cures continues to thrive because of generous donors like you! We appreciate each and every one of you!

Our Impact and Testimonials
"Here at Rainbow, we are really grateful for the establishment of the Courtney Jones Care and Cure Foundation to help our families right when they need it the most. In particular, the fact that it is so flexible and is available to patients of any age and income makes it an especially valuable resource for us- we can use the foundation for patients and families that might be restricted by other funds. Since it is a local organization, they are very literally just a phone call away! Anytime I have called CJCAC Foundation, they immediately jumped into action! Reliability is getting harder and harder to find these days and it is invaluable to know that we can always count on CJCAC Foundation." Janna S. Social Worker. UH Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital.
"The Gift card and parking passes helped my family and me out tremendously while I was in the hospital receiving a bone marrow transplant. The passes made it easy for my mom and dad to switch off and stay with me, and the gift card definitely made me happy as a teen girl who loves to shop online! Thank You so much!" Claire B., Patient at Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital.
"This foundation reaches patients and families in the most meaningful ways possible. They deeply understand the challenges and needs of families battling pediatric cancer and work tirelessly to offer comfort and relief. They designed "comfort cases" for new diagnoses spending days and weeks in the hospital filled with practical and comforting items that families don't even know they need yet. Alisha is a pillar of love, support, and strength- she has used the foundation to connect with families one-on-one. she has granted precious wishes for children and families pulling together an army of helpers, for example, pulling off a fabulous photoshoot that created invaluable memories lasting a family's lifetime. People like Alisha and the angels of CJCAC Foundation make a world of difference for patients and families. they are an absolute pleasure to work with as they are so firmly aligned with providing comfort and support to the families for our pediatric cancer community". Stephanie S., Child Life Specialist. UH Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital.
"When we heard the news about our daughter, I knew that we had to photograph these moments, her strong moments, her happy moments. We needed to capture all that we could in a still moment. Courtney Jones Care and Cure Foundation came and gave us just that. They came in at a moment that was very sad and unsure for our family. This foundation was perfect for what we needed. they supplied my baby with the most absolutely gorgeous gold dress!, Shoes, and earrings to match. They even got our pet dog matching bows! Alisha is such a beautiful spirit who has been here for us since the day she entered our lives.n We both lost our babies in April and for that, we will always have a bond. Words can't really do justice for how beautiful the photos are. the photographer with Sweet Studios Photography made it a point to get certain shots that she know we would need to see. I will always and forever support Courtney Jones Care and Cure Foundation." Jessica H., Mother of 7-year-old home hospice cancer patient.
"My Son was admitted to Cleveland Clinic for his second Bone Marrow Transplant. We live 5 hours away in West Virginia so we had no choice but to get an apartment here as we go for a cure of this rare, aggressive form of cancer. Our social worker gave us a $25 gift card when my son was admitted. He was discharged yesterday and I used it so that I could go to Walmart and get an In-Ear Infrared Thermometer needed to take my son's vitals twice a day. I hope people take the time to thank you for what you do. It really makes a difference. May God Bless you for being such a blessing to others!!!" LeeAnn G., Mother of a pediatric cancer patient, during treatment at Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital.
"I am so appreciative of your generous gift! To see the smiles and the joy in patients' eyes is priceless. Kids engaged with me that normally don't, and it was wonderful. Your gift of dinner did more than feed people food, you fed their souls too! Thank You so much!" Michele R., Patient Support Coordinator. UH Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital.
