Losing my mom after a courageous battle with lymphocytic leukemia was devastating. Jeffrey's Voice offered the help and hope that my family was not alone in our loss, and they also assured us that there are people fighting vigorously to find an end to this dreaded disease. Their help and support are priceless.
First came across Jeffrey's Voice just a couple of years ago. I watched a video about Jeffrey's story told by his wonderful Mum Nancy. It touched my heart in so many ways to hear about his fight, and of course the loss of such a beautiful young man. Then all too soon to lose Brian too, almost just too much to listen to. But I did, Nancy has to live with this story every day because it is her story, her life that she lives every day. Spreading the word of this wonderful charity one day soon, I hope and pray there will be a cure for Leukemia, and it will be with the help of one of the strongest soldiers in this battlefield Nancy Horne. Keeping my lights on. x
Jeffrey's Voice, Inc - touched my heart, I was diagnosed with AML Leukaemia. I am a survivor and I find that this site, whilst in Adelaide Australia provides information and support and keeps me grounded and reminds me to be grateful everyday.
My son and I came to know of Jeffrey when they both were undergoing treatment for leukemia. We could see Jeffrey walk the halls to gain strength after his bone marrow transplant. His determination encouraged my son, who was just beginning treatment. Over time, Jeffrey's walks were slower and eventually we stopped seeing him come by.
When my son noticed that Jeffrey's extended family and others began to visit, he told me they must have given up. I didn't, and never will, know how you can have that conversation with a child, but Nancy Horne did. It took more courage and love than words can convey.
My son was one of the fortunate ones and remains in remission 11 years later, but the odds remain poor for others. I've followed Nancy's journey since that time, knowing that our roles could have been reversed and wondering if I could have the dedication that she has to see the end of this disease. There may be many causes worthy of your support, but there is no more committed and caring person to put your donations to the best use than Nancy Horne.
Jeffrey's Voice is an all volunteer non-profit organization that seeks to find a cure for Leukemia. 100% of funds raised go towards the cause. The founder of the non-profit, Nancy Horne, lost her middle child, Jeffrey, to Leukemia. Nancy could have just curled up into a ball and grieved the rest of her life. Instead, she turned her grief into a positive by helping strangers who need a cure. I met Nancy through Facebook, while running my own non-profit that seeks to increase the bone marrow donor registry. My daughter, like Jeffrey, had leukemia, but a stem cell transplant worked for her. It did not for Jeffrey. We mother's fight on. We are fierce. And don't ever discount a mother's fight for a cure. Nancy is making a huge impact in the cancer world -- and she's doing it with all volunteers. She is remarkable. She is a warrior. She wears her grief into the battlefield, wielding her sword at the cancer beast. Nancy and her nonprofit are an example of how to go on. How to help others. How to be a world citizen. How to make a difference.
It's been a privilege to have been involved with Jeffrey's Voice, Inc. since its inception. This organization has one goal—fund research to find a cure for leukemia and blood cancers. This 501 (c) 3 non-profit operates on a frugal budget. No one receives compensation of any kind. In fact, out of every dollar raised, .95 goes directly to funding research.

Having Leukemia since 2007. I have felt very alone until I found Jeffrey's Voice. Reading the posts daily have inspired me and has given to courage and hope when I am feeling down. I thank Nancy for following her heart and having an organiztion like this in memory of her sons. God bless her always.
I met Nancy Horne through another "leukemia family member" when my late husband had leukemia. We've actually never met in person, although I feel like I know her well. Through this charity, she does amazing work to help those fighting the monster called leukemia. It is a painful and heartbreaking disease to watch a loved one go through. Nancy's strength and passion amaze me! Wonderful charity! The club she and I joined was certainly not one we ever wanted to be in.
My wife Terri was diagnosed with leukemia three years ago. When it happened we were scared and didn't know what to do. So, as many people do nowadays, we turned to the internet to try to get as much information as possible. One of the first sites I found was Jeffrey's Voice. I was immediately impressed with the tenacity and passion Ms. Nancy Horne has for her cause. Over time Terri and I have connected with others going through the same thing, I can't articulate how much it has helped us both get through this process. Ms. Nancy has not only been supportive, I feel that she has become a personal friend to us as well. Terri is currently in remission and doing fantastic. However, for some the story doesn't have a happy ending. That needs to change. Jeffrey's Voice does everything possible to find a cure for leukemia, and provides much needed support for those fighting. I can not say enough how much of an impact Jeffrey's Voice has made on our lives...
My wife Terri Peet is fighting Leukemia (ALL). She was diagnosed in July 2011. When we first found out the news we were lost and didn't know what to do. I began searching online for other people to connect with that had gone through the same experience. I found a couple of organizations that I really enjoyed, one of which was Jeffrey's Voice. I was so happy to see all the work that was done to try to rid the world of the horrible disease Leukemia. The lady that runs it is Ms. Nancy Horne, whom I have never met, but with whom I feel a kinship with because she can identify with me in the worst kind of way. She lost her precious son Jeffrey to leukemia and her other precious son Brian a short time later due to a broken heart. Every penny that is made by this organization goes to ridding the world of this terrible disease, nothing more. My wife is currently in remission and I pray that she stays that way. I would never want to lose her...
