Mission Statement

The JL Foundation was founded in memory of Jennifer Christine Leslie in March of 2002. She touched the lives of so many who strongly wished to keep her memory alive.

It is the mission of the Foundation to relieve one of the many stressful factors that leukemia patients and their families face. Our goal is to help leukemia patients and their families with monthly reimbursement for gas and meals. We also help with lodging and air line tickets when they seek a second opinion.

The Foundation gives 100% of all money raised directly to our patients. The Foundation’s expenses and operating cost are paid by Founders, Bob and Janet Leslie.

STATEMENT FROM THE Founder

"On September 4, 2001, our daughter Jennifer, lost her fifteen-year battle with leukemia. With the memory of Jennifer in mind, and the vision of a few individuals, the JL Foundation was established in March of 2002.

The JL Foundation has now helped more than 400 leukemia patients with monthly assistance while going through treatment.with assistance of $1,1270,593.46 through July 15, 2015. 100% of all money raised goes directly to our patients. The Foundation’s expenses and operating cost are paid by founders Bob and Janet Leslie.

The mission of the Foundation is to relieve one of the many stressful factors that patients and their families face. Our goal is to help patients with monthly assistance for gas and meals while they are being treated for leukemia. Treatment normally takes 2 ½ to 3 years. We give the patients .20 per mile for gas and $20.00 a day for meals. We continue the assistance for the duration of their treatment."
