We are so happy to share that DJF founder Andrew McMahon's documentary, "Dear Jack," is now available on Netflix! The film, which is narrated by Andrew's friend, Tommy Lee, and directed by Corey Moss and Josh Morrisoe, chronicles his journey from diagnosis at the age of 22 through treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia, amidst the release of the first Jack's Mannequin album, "Everything in Transit." It was this experience that led Andrew to founding DJF in the hopes of making a difference for other AYA cancer patients and survivors.

We are proud to announce that in 2016, Dear Jack Foundation (DJF) is partnering with First Descents (FD) by sponsoring a one-week outdoor experience for 15 young adult (YA) cancer survivors. FD is a Denver-based non-profit organization that provides life-changing outdoor adventures for young adults ages 18-39 impacted by cancer. Participants in their programs are not required to have previous experience in order to take part in the surfing, whitewater kayaking, or rock climbing adventures! This year, FD's week-long adventure programs have served nearly 500 young adults impacted by cancer across the U.S. and around the world. Everyone at DJF is excited to team up with FD as they work hard to improve YA survivorship via outdoor adventures and shared experiences.
