Welcome to The JADE Foundation

Our Mission

To improve the quality of life for adolescent and young adult cancer patients by providing comfort and entertainment items to relieve the emotional and physical stress of lengthy hospitalizations and treatments. We offer items such as:

  • Blankets, fleecy socks, stocking caps, and snacks
  • Games, puzzles, word search, crossword puzzles, Sudoku
  • Art supplies
  • Electronic devices such as tablets
  • Learning tools such as telescopes and microscopes
  • Outings and on-site patient events

Experts in the medical field believe that cancer patients benefit from healthy distractions as a way to take their mind off their pain and discomfort, helping them to cope with their diagnosis and treatment and promote a sense of well-being and relaxation.

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.
