LIVE N LEAP FOUNDATION, supports granting of needs and dreams of adolescents and young adults with life threatening illnesses. LIVE N LEAP FOUNDATION, acknowledges a void in resources for this group of patients between the ages of 18-29, also known as AYA (adolescents and young adults). AYAs are too old for the philanthropic children charities and are also not of an age to be self-supporting, therefore the needs and dreams of this group are unique in nature.
501(C)-3 exempt status is pending with the IRS. Once approved all donations receiver after June 25, 2017 will be tax exempt.
Hey everyone, my name is Jillian K Williams, and I was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma February 29, 2016 at age 18. Being a college freshman, volleyball player and approaching my 19th birthday I felt that my world had come to a halt. As crazy as it sounds it almost seems as if the world stops spinning and my family and I did not know what was going to come next. As I was being treated I met many other patients my age and older that felt the same way .
Yes, ending treatment is a relief but that is all we had to look forward to and some were not even that lucky.
So that is where my idea came to life. Although I was not able to have an exciting trip or anything at the end of treatment I made it a goal of mine to provide other patients with that opportunity! Many times, adolescents and young adult get looked over because we are considered adults but are not yet the age to support ourselves.
I pray to fulfill needs and dreams of AYA patients that way they have an exciting “something” to look forward to as well. We also encourage everyone to be impacted by this amazing age group and feel compelled to donate abundantly, share amazing stories of strength and courage and LEAP through life.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you plans to give you hope and a future.”
