The Team John Foundation was started to help those who fall into crisis. Through John's personal battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (2014), he saw the generosity of those in his community. He felt compelled to give back and immediately started the first fundraisers directly with The Jimmy Fund. These events raised close to $100,000 over the years and all went to help families battling cancer and stem-cell research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. This summer (2020) his cancer relapsed and he had to go fight again...back to Dana-Farber. Once home through a conversation with his wife, Tatum, the idea to create a formal charity came to him as he was looking for a bigger purpose in life. That is when the idea became more and is now a recognized 501(c)(3). The goal of the charity is to help those that fall into crisis. Not only when someone is diagnosed with cancer but also for any immediate crisis where a loved one is lost or displaced due to sudden illness or accident.
Thanks for your support!!!
