Jacob's Heart Children's Cancer Support Services


Jacob’s Heart Children’s Cancer Support Services exists to improve the quality of life for children with cancer and support their families in the challenges they face.

The Big Idea

Jacob’s Heart Children’s Cancer Support Services improves the lives of children with cancer and helps their families navigate the challenging path they face. Some families with medically fragile children are already hard-hit socioeconomically. Jacob’s Heart recognizes that many bicultural families, in particular, do not have the resources they need to deal with their children’s medical challenges. That’s why their Big Idea is to hire bicultural psychotherapists, counselors and staff to help these families. Jacob’s Heart’s Forever Loved grief support program will also expand to create Forever Siblings, a peer-mentorship children’s grief support program.

"Jacob's Heart asks how Anthony is feeling, they bring us diapers. They think about him and about us. Many groups are helping us, but what Jacob's Heart does is personal."

- Sergiy and Natalia Biletsky

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $7.8 million for 162 local nonprofits in 2020.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $35 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 7,578 donors. We did it, together.

The 2021 Campaign begins November 11.
