The CJR Memorial Foundation was started in loving memory of Caleb Joseph Regenski who was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor at age 2. Caleb lost his battle with cancer but his memory lives on. The CJR Memorial Foundation financially supports families of critically ill children, lessening the burden so parents are not forced to choose between work and being beside their sick child. We passionately support the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Ronald McDonald House and Make-A-Wish Foundation. We recently funded a beautiful handicapped accessible playground in Caleb’s hometown of Hawley, PA that has become an attraction for children from miles around.
The CJR Memorial Foundation wants to celebrate amazing kids who are making a difference for others! We are in search of inspirational kids who are helping in the fight against cancer. We hope you will share stories of kids who have started their own charitable missions and recommend them to us for consideration. Help us connect with kids who are cancer survivors or who were inspired by someone with cancer in their life and have used this experience to help others during their fight.
If you know of a kid-started charity that benefits others with cancer, we want to hear all about it.
Our board is excited to learn more about these amazing kids and will be reviewing all applications prior to this years event in May. Then, our board will select our “Most Inspirational Kid” whose charity mission will receive a grant from the CJR Memorial Foundation!
