JTV Cares - Charity Support, Philanthropy, Community Outreach
JTV is excited and happy to partner with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS), the largest nonprofit health organization dedicated to finding cures and ensuring access to treatments for blood cancer patients. Since 1949, LLS has worked tirelessly toward its mission to cure blood cancers such as leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, along with improving the quality of life of patients and their families.
According to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, blood cancers are the third leading cancer killer among Americans and every 3 minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer. LLS funds lifesaving blood cancer research around the world and supports advocacy for policies that protect patient access to treatment. The organization also provides free information and support services for patients and their families in order to give them hope, compassion and information during a dark and scary time.
JTV is working with LLS to raise awareness of the different types of blood cancers and to help raise funds for continued research, treatments and education for patients. You can make a difference to this organization by making a personal donation, purchasing a special JTV exclusive LLS pendant or by participating in one of the Light the Night fundraising campaigns and walk events.
Catch Your Breath®
JTV is proud to support a new women's health initiative, Respiratory Health Association®, based in Chicago, Illinois. A public health leader since 1906, Respiratory Health Association® is devoted to its mission of preventing lung disease (asthma, COPD, lung cancer), promoting clean air and helping people live better lives through education, research and policy change.
Women’s respiratory health issues are one of the leading causes of death among women and lung cancer kills more women than all other cancers. Nearly 21 million women in the U.S. live with some form of chronic lung disease, and millions more will be diagnosed.
Throughout the month of February, JTV will be advancing knowledge about respiratory health and raising funds for women’s lung health research and programs through Respiratory Health Association’s Catch Your Breath® campaign. The Catch Your Breath® campaign raises funding for research and programs to better understand lung disease and improve treatments. In addition, it increases awareness by educating the public and medical professionals about the disproportionate effects of lung disease on women.
JTV also hosts charity events throughout the year that benefit other local and national non-profit organizations. See below for details about upcoming events and how you can get involved.
