The National Brain Tumor Society was the charity that was nearest and dearest to Jackie. She was an amazing advocate for them, raising so much money that they named a research chair in her honor. The first time the San Francisco Bay Area branch of the Brain Tumor Society asked Jackie to speak was 2010, the second walk after she was diagnosed. I came across this video of her speaking and was once again blown away by just how amazing she was, even during the worst of times.
