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.

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.

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.
