Saturday February 26th is a big day for Jason's Friends Foundation. It's the annual fundraiser that covers about 50% of the budget for the organization. We visited with Lisa Eades this morning about the event and the organization.

Wyoming struggles with access to diagnostic and therapeutic resources for children diagnosed with cancer.  The standard of care for children with cancer is treatment at an accredited cancer center that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of childhood cancer. Therefore, once a child is diagnosed with cancer in the state of Wyoming, they are immediately transferred out of state, often to Denver, Salt Lake City, or sometimes much further away, to begin treatment at a specialized pediatric cancer center.  With no primary cancer treatment available for children in Wyoming, this creates a tremendous financial burden, as well as time spent out of state, to families who are also dealing with the emotional stress of cancer diagnosis. Jason’s Friends Foundation was created to assist families throughout Wyoming whose children are suffering with cancer, brain tumors or spinal cord tumors.
