Jordan's Angel Foundation
Jordan's Angel Foundation was established in memory of eight-year-old Jordan Richey and her seven-year battle against leukemia. Throughout this experience it was apparent that many families with children in pediatric oncology had unmet emotional and financial needs. We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to caring for families of children with cancer and their special needs. In order to meet the needs of these children and their families we will assist with the funding for counseling, recreational opportunities, family financial needs, assistance for parents to be with their child during medical treatment, airfare for grandparents to be with the family, grocery and gas cards, fun-filled parties to offer hospitalized children comfort, companionship and a break from medical treatment and opportunities for the family to create lasting memories with the child.
The Highlands Ranch Community Scholorship Fund is the co-beneficiary of this year's event!
