The JADE Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for young adult cancer patients. By providing entertainment for those undergoing treatment, the Foundation offers pleasurable distractions from the emotional and physical effects of cancer.

The JADE Foundation honors the memory of Alex Dobay, a Burton, Ohio resident and Hawken School graduate, who, after bravely battling cancer for several years, succumbed to the illness at the age of 19.
