The Santa Cruz, CA-based Jordan and Kyra Memorial Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created in memory of Jordan Stuart and Kyra Pillsbury, two Bay Area children who lost their battles with brain tumors, but whose spirit and courage continue to inspire others. The Foundation offers COMPASSION by raising funds for Jacob’s Heart, a non-profit that provides family-centered care that addresses the emotional, practical and financial struggles experienced by the families of children and teens undergoing treatment, families with anticipatory grief, and those who are bereaved. It also provides COMFORT for the families of children with pediatric cancers by funding Family House, a non-profit residence for the families of children undergoing treatment at UCSF Medical Center in San Francisco; and HOPE, by funding cutting-edge research that is being conducted by world renowned cancer specialist at Dartmouth Cancer Center aimed at eradicating pediatric cancer as a life-threatening illness– previously spearheaded by Dr. Mark Israel, MD, and most recently under the direction of Dr. Matthew Havrda, PhD.
