Jason and Audrey of Jbirdsjourney
Jason and Audrey, founders of JBirdsjourney

Jbirdsjourney, a nonprofit corporation, began when Jason ("JBird"), a military firefighter with over 23 years of service, was diagnosed with Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma, a rare form of cancer that develops in glandular tissues.  In Jason's case, the cancer is in the lacrimal gland behind his right eye.  And so began his journey, a much longer battle than any firefight.

When speaking to the doctors to develop a treatment plan, Jason and his wife, Audrey, learned of some stories of others with this rare disease.  Some of the treatments are experimental and not covered by some insurance plans.

While Jason and Audrey feel fortunate that Jason is able to get treatment and they have a support system to help them through this tremendous trial, they realize there are others in worse circumstances.

Jbirdsjourney is their response to this challenge. They want to not only spread awareness about rare diseases such as Lacrimal Gland Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma, but also to make sure no one has to fight a battle like this alone.
