TOGETHER WE FIGHT
Friends of the Jimmy Everest Center is a fundraising campaign of Children's Hospital Foundation that supports research and care in hopes of ending childhood cancer.
The Jimmy Everest Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders is Oklahoma’s only comprehensive, full-service children's cancer program, helping children fight and defeat cancer every single day. While 8 out of every 10 children treated will win their own personal war with cancer, we want to ensure the other 2 children have the same hope. There has been considerable progress, but we know there is a lot of work to be done.
We are getting better at fighting pediatric cancer and researchers are uncovering more information about what causes cancer and how to beat it. However, the mission is still not complete, because losing one child to pediatric cancer is one too many.
James "Jimmy" Christopher Everest died in 1992 at the age of 17 after a brave bout with bone cancer. Memorial donations were made to create The Jimmy Everest Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (JEC) in honor of his life.
Staffed by OU Children's Physicians, the JEC is a child's best resource in providing cancer and blood disorder treatment along with emotional and mental support. The child-friendly center, which serves as a referral center for children throughout Oklahoma and the region, focuses on providing comprehensive care for cancer and blood disorders. The JEC also provides several comprehensive clinics for sickle cell disease, hemophilia, thrombophilia, brain tumors, neurocutaneous syndromes and survivorship.
