Team Jack Foundation Marks 9 Years of Funding Childhood Brain Cancer Research

Nine years ago in January, the Team Jack Foundation ( officially became a registered 501(C)(3) nonprofit with the mission to fund childhood brain cancer research. Andy and Brianna Hoffman founded the Team Jack Foundation after discovering the treatment options for their son Jack when he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. They knew the research they funded would likely not benefit their child but wanted to create a different path for children in the future. As of January 1, 2013, they had already raised over $300,000 for research. Today, the Foundation has raised over $9.3 million and has funded 12 national and local research projects and counting. This includes one drug that is on the path to becoming the FIRST ever drug developed specifically for children with brain cancer, DAY 101.

This doesn’t happen without the support of many, and, for that, Team Jack is forever grateful. The Foundation continues to be fueled by families affected by childhood brain cancer in Nebraska and across the United States. They are the reason for the fight.

Team Jack Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that raises money to fund impactful childhood brain cancer research and works to raise national awareness for the disease. To learn more about Team Jack, visit
