Established by the Eiserer family in 1986 as a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, the Carol Jean Cancer Foundation, Inc. (CJCF) was founded in memory of Carol Jean Eiserer, a Maryland schoolteacher who died of a malignant brain tumor at age 43. Carol Jean was dedicated to teaching children that life offers opportunities for joy and hope even in the face of pain and illness. In addition, CJCF's ongoing inspiration is the courage of the children and families we serve.
CJCF serves families throughout Maryland, Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C.
Parents face catastrophic medical bills, the injustice of seeing their child in pain, and the anguish of being unable to ease their suffering. Siblings are hurting too and they have special needs when their parent's time, attention, and emotions are suddenly diverted to the sick child.
Today, no family faced with the news that their child has cancer has to face that challenge alone; we're here to help. Through CJCF's programs, they find comfort, help and understanding at a time of their most critical need.
