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.
In a time of economic challenges for all nonprofits, Jeffrey's Voice continues to raise funds that are used to help find a cure for Leukemia. The founder, Nancy, works tirelessly to help all who are affected by this wretched disease, which robbed her of her two sons. She could have crawled under a rock after Jeffrey and Brian passed away and no one would have blamed her. Instead, she fired up her passion to find a cure so that other families would have hope. I didn't meet Nancy online until my own daughter developed two rare blood cancers and underwent a stem cell transplant. I was grateful to find Nancy and I remain appreciative of all she and her foundation do to help others. She is a true example of alturism and I'm proud to be associated with Jeffrey's Voice, which our own foundation considers a cherished partner.

Jeffrey's Voice was founded by a grieving mother who lost her son to an insidious disease -- Leukemia. Some would withdraw from the world after such a horrific loss, but not Nancy. The goal of the foundation she formed is to raise funds for research so that Leukemia may one day be eradicated from humankind. Jeffery's Voice works tirelessly to achieve this goal. Because of Jeffrey's Voice, some other mother in the future will see her child's life saved. Respectfully, Ann Haehn, Founder and President, Genny's Hope Foundation (www.gennyhope.org)
I have been on Twitter for years and I have witnessed Nancy Horne and Jefferey Voice being shared through social media faithfully and consistently with great passion. I see the heart of this organization that was born from a personal experience of a Mom that lost two boys that has grown into a testimony and legacy of the lives of those young men. Then this organization reaches into the lives of individuals with Leukemia and touches hearts and impacts lives. I think this organization is a living testiment to what a small nonprofit organization should be. I myself have founded and promoted NonProfits and been involved in high profile fund raising campaigns for national nonprofits and I believe Jeffrey's Voice embodies everything a group like this should to represent people with Leukemia and to the general public for the betterment of our society. I support them wholeheartedly.
