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.
I was diagnosed with CLL in March of 2011. I lost my father to Cancer two months post my diagnosis. I met Nancy Horne on Facebook and read about the amazing things she's done through her foundation Jeffrey's Voice, Inc. I have found her to be my strength and someone that has done so much good considering what she's been through. Nancy is an amazing woman, and I am blessed to know that she's doing so much for all of us who have a form of leukemia. Thank you Nancy for ALL YOU DO through Jeffrey's Voice, Inc. May God bless you.
Having been diagnosed with AML twice in four years, receiving a stem cell transplant the second time, I can speak from my own terrible experience with leukemia. As with most people in the general population I used to think that cancer had to include some sort of tumor in one's body. Boy was I wrong! Leukemia is indeed a cancer albeit one within your blood. Essentially this cancer is destroying your blood cells. I have connected to so many victims over the past four years that have contracted the disease. Quite a few survived, but unfortunately some people that had so much to live for and perhaps give to society succumbed to it. Fortunately I have been able to make great progress in my recovery and, including my brother who provided me with his perfect match stem cells, I attribute this to the great physicians and hospitals that give so much of themselves in working to eradicate leukemia. But the defeat of the monster is far from victory. It depends on the continuous work of scientists and medical personnel. But this does realistically come with a price. It's hard to believe but the odds of someone you know, possibly a close relative, of becoming a victim of leukemia are high. There is no definite known cause or cure but with the continued and selfless volunteer work of Nancy Horne's "Jeffrey's Voice" and the dedicated actions of Laura Clark Koon, who has suffered the terrible loss of her young husband because of leukemia, there can be more survivors such as I that are fortunate to be able to encourage others to donate to the cause.
My daughter had leukemia and is now in remission. Knowing that there are people who care and are working towards a cure boosts our spirits. We pray that people like this will help to bring an end to this horrible disease once and for all.
JEFFREYS VOICE IS A WONDERFL NON PROFIT ORGANIZATION. It was started an is run by a wonderful woman that tragically lost 2 amazing sons to this horrible disease , way before their time. She now works diligently to raise funds so that others don't suffer . I have so much respect for her. Several times a day she posts information on blood cancers an leukemia. Her only mission is to help others I pray that others will help JEFFREYS VOICE so that this disease can be in the past
I recently spent a few weeks with Nancy and cant compliment her enough on her passion and drive. She is a tireless warrior when it comes to this wonderful cause and I wish her nothing but the best.
When I decided to go to enroll at Georgia Southern University the fall of 2005, I decided I was going to join a Fraternity. I chose Delta Chi and was the president of our pledge class...all 12 of us. Jeff Horne was one of my pledge brothers and a good friend. Tragically, he passed away too soon and in his and his brothers honor, their mother started this wonderful charity. My wife and I have been as involved as our time permits but Jeffrey's Voice is always on our minds. Mrs. Horne works tirelessly to make sure events are planned and go well. She constantly keeps us updated on what is happening through social media as well. We love the charity and cant wait to keep helping. I'd recommend it to anyone who can help.
