What you will find on this website


As new GBM and Brain Cancer research is made available we will provide updates to patients, families and care givers with newly updated information on clinical trials, advanced research initiatives and care giving tips for our loved ones.


We work diligently to provide support venues to “care givers” that are providing both emotional and psychological support to loved ones battling brain cancer and brain tumors that is paramount to maintaining a healthy and strong path to survivability and recovery during challenging and stressful times.


Our foundation is grateful for our family of volunteers that have provided support to increase public awareness of our foundation, event support through selfless giving which is the foundation of the Jennifer Lynn Thompson Memorial Foundation.


In loving memory of our daughter Jennifer Lynn Thompson born on April 30, 1976 and lost her battle to Brain Cancer (GBM) on May 14, 2014. In her short life, she touched the souls of many and taught us the meaning of selfness acts of kindness and love. In her words, 'putting others' needs before our own is God's message to all of us for everlasting peace”. Also, to every cancer patient, family member and friend who has lost the battle with cancer and the ones that continue to conquer it!

Jennifer's Journey

Every family has always heard it stated that losing a child is the most devastating heartbreak that any parent could ever fathom and the new norm is learning to live with the greatest loss ever imagined.

As Jennifer's father, I watched a part of my wife die the day Jennifer took her last breath and know the strongest person in the world is a grieving mother that wakes up and keeps going every morning. Maggie has found solace in that she was there for the most important events in hers and Jennifer's life; her first breath and her last.
