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. Just 2.5% covers fundraising expenses and 2.5% covers administrative cost.
The money donated TRULY goes directly to funding research for leukemia and blood cancers. In 2010, the organization established the Jeffrey’s Voice Leukemia Research Fund at the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. Jeffrey’s Voice continues its support of this Fund that provides important assistance to research initiatives in the Bone Marrow Transplant Department at Emory.
Please visit http://cure-leukemia.jeffreysvoice.org and read the story of two courageous brothers and how this non-profit honors their legacy. If you want to ensure your donations go directly to funding research for a cure for these diseases, you will not find a better steward for your money.
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...
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.
Nancy Horne is not only an inspiration, but she is a comforting place to go, an encouraging word, and a dedicated leader. She has talked me through the most difficult times of my life. She has guided me, and motivated me, and above all else, she has cared for me. I can honestly say, my life would be a lot darker if it weren't for Nancy Horne and Jeffrey's Voice leaving the light on. She is by far the most deserving of this recognition. She deserves it, she earned it, and she would honor it.
- Laura Clark Koon
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
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 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.
This is truly a wonderful nonprofit organization run by a mother who lost her son to leukemia. She is determined to fight this disease and to help those afflicted with the disease. She realizes the importance of also helping the other families members who have had a loved one diagnosed with the disease. Nancy Horne is an amazing woman who has faced a mother;s worse nightmare and now dedicates her life to helping others. I donate what little I can to this organization because I know the sincerity and honesty of Nancy Horne and her 100% commitment to helping others.
This is a wonderful charitable organiation led by a mother who lost her two sons as a result of leukemia. After such a horrific loss in her life she has managed to dedicate herself to helping others with this terrible disease and to fight to find a cure for the disease so no other parent has to lose their child. This is an extremely worthwhile charity to donate for helping others.
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)
Just want to say that this organization gives a voice to those who can no longer speak...I can't think of any more noble an organization that is so stead fast and genuine in its fight against this horrible disease...we recognize and want to thank them for picking and carrying the torch even when personally painful to them-they do it. It is thier personal mission. If only more people in this world could use thier knowledge and power for good like this -what a different world this would be...
I first became aware of Jeffrey's Voice in October of 2010. Because I have worked in advertising & media, I know it is not cheap to advertise. Therefore, I've always been a bit leery of any non-profit organization that does a lot of advertising. I recognized right away that Jeffrey's Voice was different. I saw Jeffrey's Voice had one true mission and that was to help fund research that would lead to a cure for Leukemia and Blood Cancers. I personally have no experience with Leukemia and I pray I never will, but there was something about this organization that spoke to me, almost literally. It was as if it were calling on me. I had never met Nancy Horne, the founder and president of Jeffrey's Voice, and I still haven't. Yet, I feel I've known her all my life. In December of 2012, I asked Nancy if I could help in any way. I wasn't sure what I could do since she lives in Florida and I live in Tennessee, but she put me right to work. It is very rewarding to know that I am helping to bring awareness to such a horrific disease. Leukemia is one of the deadliest cancers, yet, so many people are still unaware and under educated of its danger and existence. Jeffrey's Voice is helping to change that. Oh, by the way, we only use free forms of advertising and all of our volunteers are exactly that... PROUD VOLUNTEERS!! Every penny donated to Jeffrey's Voice goes directly toward research for a cure.
My sister is fighting leukemia . She is 39 with 3 sons and a husband . It has changed her life and the life of her family members. I didn't know much about this disease until my little sister was diagnosed . Now I'm am learning all I can . I learned of this organization for Laura Koon . I met her at MD Anderson in Houston . She shared with me her story . My sister was in ICU at the time with a blood infection, pneumonia . She made it out of ICU . I came home and found this page . Now it is my goal to share and help bring awareness any chance I have . Mrs Nancy Horne is a wonderful lady. Not only helping others but by bringing awareness . I hope together we can all find a cure !
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.
My husband, our son and I have been living in a daily nightmare, leukemia is that nightmare, and that nightmare is our reality. I came across Jeffrey's Voice trying to find an organization dedicated to curing this terrible disease. Jeffrey's voice has offered my family knowledge, hope, love and most of all support. Nancy Horne, who started this organization drove several hours to visit my husband after we received the heart breaking news that my husband had relapsed for the fourth time at the young age of 27. He has fought this demon for 9 long, hard years. Mrs. Horne has reminded us Daily, several times a day that there are people in this world that are dedicated to this terrible disease that seemed to go unnoticed. When my husband was told there was no other treatments available for him here is Georgia Mrs. Horne and Jeffrey's Voice put us in contact with individuals at MD Anderson hospital in Houston, Tx where we traveled alone, frightened and desperate. Jeffrey's voice made certain that we were not alone however, we received help and support from other people that are involved with Jeffrey's Voice. We were visited by strangers who offered their help and advice. I personally have never traveled, never been away from home and never ventured into the unknown on my own, I was terrified to face this ordeal and to be so far from home but Jeffrey's Voice gave me peace and comfort. This organization has had an enormous and positive impact on my husband and me. I know with out any doubt that the members and volunteers of Jeffrey's Voice will continue to help others who live the daily nightmare of leukemia. I have been so very blessed to have found an organization that offers knowledge, hope, love and support and I could never express my sincere appreciation.
I have dealt with many organizations in the past 2 years since being diagnosed with leukemia. After speaking with Nancy she more than convinced me of her true compassion and dedication to finding a cure.When it comes from a mother who has battled this with and for her children, it shows what an honorable mother , leader and fighter she is.
I was working for an organization that helps non-profits raise money with the help of digital music downloads when I found Jeffrey's Voice on Twitter. I had been researching various charities for weeks, but something stood out about Jeffrey's Voice. After visiting their website to learn more and viewing their YouTube videos, I felt compelled to do try and help them in some way. Soon after, I spoke to the founder and President, Nancy Horne. Nancy's videos, her posts, her words... touched my soul in a way that I still cannot explain. I have never met a woman so dedicated, determined - so STRONG. Her life was changed forever by a disease called Leukemia and now she is carrying on the legacy of the two sons that this disease took from her so that other families, children...mothers and fathers don't feel the pain that she and her family feel. I HIGHLY recommend Jeffrey's Voice and I STRONGLY encourage others to get involved and join in the fight to cure leukemia.
Jeffrey's Voice is not just another non-profit organization; it's the heart and soul of a mother, Nancy Horne, who lived through a mother's worst nightmare, poured into a determined goal of finding a cure for the deadly disease that so profoundly affected her family. It is a privilege for my husband and me to be involved with this effort born out of love and so dedicated to its goal.
The Horne family have created Jeffrey's Voice to help raise money and awareness for Leukemia and other blood cancers. A family friend was diagnosed with Leukemia last year. Jeffrey's Voice was these for support.
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
The Horne Family works tirelessly to rid the world of this vicious disease that took the life of their young adult son and then 2nd son from complications related to trying to save the first son. No family should ever have to experience such loss. However, they face the challenge of spreading the word about research and finding cures with such grace. If we could only help them in their fight-perhaps their story would be seen as a triumph rather than a tragedy.
The Jeffrey's Voice 5k was amazing. My best friend died of leukemia a few years ago and although it was devastating, I wanted to keep her spirit alive. Participating in 5ks (and other similar events) has allowed me to do just that. In the few years since Christy's passing I've run a number of 5ks, but this particular event for ~ Jeffrey's Voice and a cure for Leukemia ~ was VERY well organized and the positive energy was contagious! The most exciting part of this event was students' leading role in its realization. I'm a teacher and Christy was a children's nurse, thus, watching the next generation take such a proactive step towards educating the community and finding a cure was inspiring! And yes, the pancakes were also pretty amazing :-) Soria E. Colomer, MA, NBCT

There are not enough words to begin to describe the amazing efforts of Jeffrey's Voice; but the story behind it is greater than that. The story is tragic, yet shows just how much of a difference, the two young men who inspired Jeffrey's Voice, really did make, and have continued to make, even after the loss of those wonderful men. I witnessed the story, from the beginning, being Jeffrey's girlfriend throughout high school and college. It is devastating what Leukemia (AML) can do to a person, not only physically, but emotionally, and to those around. Mrs. Horne, Jeffrey and Brian's mother, has established the charity in order to continue to fight, for a cure for the wretched disease. Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, (where Jeffrey was treated) has even seen what a difference Jeffrey's Voice is making, by critical research being done there, that Jeffrey's Voice has helped fund. Every part of Jeffrey's Voice, every cent, goes to helping find a cure for Leukemia. But more importantly than that, Jeff and Brian Horne's voices continue to be heard, through the hard work and dedication of the organization. Jeffrey's Voice is a charity that won't give up ~ not ever, and not until we find a cure for this horrific disease.
The story of the start of this great organization is a sad one. It has touched me and many other people personally. The Horne brothers were great friends and members of the Delta Chi Fraternity at Georgia Southern University. Unfortunately while still such a young man, Jeff was diagnosed with Leukemia and passed away less than a year later before his 21st birthday. His younger brother then passed away from heart complications a short time later. While this would be enough to devestate anyone for the rest of their life, Nancy Horne decided to turn her sadness into a great cause and organization, Jeffrey's Voice. She has given everything she has to promote this organization and take it to the next level. While many organizations claim to be non-profit and only some of the money you donate actually gets to the cause, that is definitely not the case with Jeffrey's Voice. All of the money raised goes directly to the cause. Mrs. Nancy even covers a lot of the overhead out of her own pocket! While we will never be able to bring back our great friends Jeff and Brian, we can ensure that their memory and legacy is not forgotten through this great organization. I highly recommend getting involved!
Jeffrey's Voice is an organization founded on nothing but love. Two young men who wanted their life experience with leukemia to bring about a cure for future patients and a mother who is bold and strong enough to carry out her sons dreams. Because it has been created on nothing but love, there is no financial gain for anyone but research organizations capable of fulfilling the mission of Jeffrey's Voice - to find a cure for leukemia.
Jeffrey's Voice was established by a dear friend of mine out of the pain of the loss of 2 of her sons due to the impact of leukemia in their lives. Rather than crawl up in silence, Nancy took her pain and turned it into action motivated by her sons who had wanted, more than anything, to find a cure for leukemia. And she's not sitting around waiting for funds to come to her - she's going out in every possible direction and seeking resources to go directly to leukemia and other blood cancer research.
Jeffrey's Voice affects me personally because, in addition to my love and awe for the Horne family, my son grew up with Jeff and Brian. He, too, supports their cause due to their passion as well as his own personal connection. Kirk is a blood cancer (Hodgkins Lymphoma) survivor.
I have been involved with Nancy and her cause since earlier this year. The story of Jeffrey's Voice is touching in that Nancy lost not just one, but two sons. Nancy & Jeffrey's Voice are advocating for a cure for leukemia. Jeffrey's Voice is very active on social media to help spread education and awareness. I have learned alot from their posts.
i had AML bck in aug 09. first i had MDS and had 2 transplants. . nevr know cancer going to hit you and cancer does not care when. when i found out on AML, week before my oldest 9th birthday. i hate to tell her before but i had to. day of her party i went to the hospital for chemo. it was hard to leave my girls. if you can please go do a be amatch. swabbing in the mouth. and if you are a donor, they will put you asleep and not feel a thing. they will not cut you open and you be sore but worth saving a life. never know who life you are saving. iam a mom and a wife!! because of my donor iam live today!!
Jeffery's Voice is a wonderful organization that is fighting for more research dollars to help families and patients globally who have faced a blood cancer with no cure in site. I have volunteered several times for this organization and have always found that in every way they are focused on the goal of finding a cure. Jeffery's Voice has a heart for people and families touched by blood cancers and will continue forward until a cure is found.
I have known Nancy and her family twenty years and have had close contact with them. Watching Nancy lose her two sons so close in time because of the impact of leukemia was heartbreaking. But to be a witness to see Nancy overcome this with courage and determination in establishing Jeffrey's Voice has been an inspiration to us all.
Jeffery's goal was to survive Leukemia and help find a cure. This was not to be.
Nancy, Jeffrey's mom established JEFFREY'S VOICE to support Leukemia and blood cancer research and to help fulfil Jeffrey's goal find a cure. I support JEFFREY'S VOICE And all donations are used for research. Nancy and I have been friends since the late 70's.

I am a proud supporter of Jeffrey's Voice. I fully support Nancy's mission to find a cure for Leukemia and blood cancers. Although, I never met Jeffrey or Brian Horne, I feel like they are apart of my family, and I will do everything I can to spread the word about this cause. I admire & love Nancy Horne very much, I will always stand by her side.
I am a proud supporter of Jeffrey's Voice and their mission to find a cure for leukemia and blood cancers. I am so inspired by not only the story of brothers Jeffrey and Brian, but the heartfelt caring that goes into everything they do. They are simply amazing!
Jeffrey and Brian were my brothers - Jeffrey lost his life to leukemia, and Brian passed away shortly after Jeffrey did. Through Jeffrey's Voice, their legacies continue to live on - in life, they were committed to helping others suffering from this progressive disease, and their memory continues to inspire others to join the fight against blood cancers.
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 have known Nancy Horne, the mother of Jeffrey, for many years and have witnessed the huge struggle she and her family went through in the efforts to save Jeffrey. I – and many others – admire the fact she has not shrunk into the cloak of despair but has creatively worked toward a solution for this terrible disease. The passion for a cure is measured by the results Jeffrey's Voice has achieved in just a year - the establishment of a Leukemia Research Fund at the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University.
Having had the pleasure of knowing Jeffrey Horne and how dedicated he was to defeating Leukemia, I urge everyone to support this worthy cause. Leukemia/Lymphoma can be cured and eradicated if enough caring people support Jeffrey's Voice, financially and voluntarily. I am proud to be a supporter of this much needed organization.
The founder of Jeffrey's Voice, Nancy Horne, is a loving, caring and outstanding individual. Nancy and her associates are to be commended for the significant progress Jeffrey's Voice has made in a short period of time. Jeffrey's Voice is critical in the war on Leukemia/Lymphoma.
Hopefully, Jeffrey's Voice will be "heard" not only in the southeast, but throughout the nation.
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.
Jeffrey's Voice has one objective; to find a cure for cancer and stop the hurting of those affected. This charity has kept Jeffrey's memory alive through the continued bonding of friends for its purpose. The world will be a better place!
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.
