Cradle Cancer Foundation
Learn More About this Great Cause!
What is it?
In January of 2015 the Cradle Cancer Foundation was created. The foundation was originally established to help Christy Colon (former teacher/coach at JBHS) but due to her great selflessness, it has grown to help others. Christy’s vision was to help others who are struggling in the school district. Christy wanted to ensure that others would not have to fight cancer and fight to obtain funds. Like many foundations, The Cradle Cancer Foundation raises monies for OUR Martin County School District Employees. When a district employee or an immediate family member is battling cancer, we are here to help.
How can I receive help?
There is a short application that will need to be completed. A board will then look at the application and a decision about scholarships will be made at that point. We can provide funds immediately for doctors’ appointments, treatments, and everyday expenses that come along with this fight.
What has the Foundation done?
The Foundation has been going strong for 9 years and has assisted Martin County teachers and families with financial help of more than $22,000. The foundation has also donated $16,000 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
