Still the best charity on the block. Nancy (and Claude) Horne pour their hearts into the cause and get nothing in return -- only the certainty that their efforts are eventually going to grind leukemia into dust! I am still proud to be an enthusiastic supporter.

Terrific group of people headed by a dedicated couple, the Hornes, who have lost two sons to leukemia and its repercussions. There is no fat here, no expenses of any consequence -- donations really do go for research to cure leukemia. This is a model non-profit with which I am proud to be associated.

I am proud to be a board member for Jeffrey's Voice. Our sole purpose is to find a cure for leukemia and other blood cancers. Our mission is to fund research to find a cure for leukemia and support the Bone Marrow Transplant Department at Winship Cancer Institute, Emory University Hospital. This was the mission of two young brothers, Jeffrey Horne, a victim of Acute Mylogenous and his younger brother, bone marrow/stem cell transplant donor, Brian Horne. Both young men were vocal in expressing the need for research for a cure and participated in a variety of charitable activties on behalf of this cause, before their death. My friend Nancy Horne, the mother of the two young men, founder of Jeffrey's Voice, life changed in the blink of an eye. I will never be able to mend her broken heart. But, I have been willing to support the wishes and dreams of Jeffrey, Brian, and Nancy by serving on the board. Together as a nonprofit group, we look for ways to educate the public about blood cancers and support the research team at Emory University Hospital. Personally, I have written letters to friends and family. I, along with the help of my grand children, had a cider stand to raise money to support our mission. As a member of the board, we had our first annual charitable event last November. We continue to look for funds so that the day will come when no more are lost to leukemia, when all remissions are permanent, and when finally there is a cure for all. Peggy Rusk Bladen

I will never forget the day I met Jeffrey and Brian Horne. They were 17 and 15 years old. They were energetic young boys and just full of life. We were at the beach and my husband recognized their parents, Claude and Nancy. We had a great time together reminiscencing about our days at UGA, while Jeffrey and Brian enjoyed the day. A few short years later, I received an email that Nancy and Claude had lost Jeffrey at the age of 20 to Acute Mylogenous Leukemia. Five months later, I received another email that Brian had died of acute respiratoy failure and sudden cardiac arrest. My heart was broken for our friends. A year later Nancy founded Jeffrey's Voice. As I serve on this board, I remember the beautiful day we shared together with her family and I work with her to help find a cure for leukemia and other blood disorders.

I am privileged to serve on the Board for this wonderful organization, whose only mission is to find a cure for leukemia and other blood cancers. In just a year, Nancy Horne, the founder and President of this non-profit, mobilized the community to raise the funds necessary to establish the Jeffrey's Voice Leukemia Research Fund at the Winship Cancer Center at Emory University. The organization is dedicated 100% to its mission and operates with nearly no expenses.

I met Nancy Horne through work and quickly became her friend. Then I watched her go through a heartbreaking personal tragedy in which she lost her two young sons within several weeks of each other because of the impact of Leukemia. But in the midst of all of the sadness, I also saw what hope, courage, and determination truly looked like in Nancy's actions. I did not hesitate when she asked me to serve on the Board of Directors for Jeffrey’s Voice. Nancy established this charity to fund research programs that will lead to a cure for Leukemia and Blood Cancers.

continue to expand our outreach to potential new donors. Nancy Horne has an inspiring personal story to tell. Additionally, everyone working with Jeffrey's Voice is a volunteer and all funds go directly to funding research.
