Aliza Jean Family Cancer Foundation
Providing support for Maine families with children fighting brain cancer
Just one day? Just one minute? Just one smile, tear or caress? What would you give for Just One?
Though her 8 month fight seemed short to many, hundreds if not thousands of friends, family and complete strangers were touched along the way by Aliza’s ability to fight hard, and stay positive. Her desire to eventually help other teenagers deal with a cancer diagnosis never came to be. In January 2013, Aliza took the hands of the Lord and went home to Heaven.
Because Aliza’s needs were so great during her cancer treatments, her parents Craig & Karen dedicated themselves to her care around the clock. During this time, so many people stepped in to help Craig and Karen’s family, not only emotionally and spiritually but financially as well. By doing so, they were able to give Aliza the best care possible and be by her side through her entire journey.
They have now established the ALIZA JEAN FAMILY CANCER FOUNDATION. Their mission is to give that same kind of focus and positive energy to families in their area whose child is fighting brain cancer.
