Jaden Cares is the brain child of 10-year-old Jaden Lowery. At the age of 6, Jaden was diagnosed with B-cell Lymphoma, forcing him to have to undergo several rounds of intravenous and spinal chemotherapy. Jaden fought and won his bout with cancer, with care and treatment from the outstanding team of doctors, nurses and staff of Cook's Children Hospital in Fort Worth. During his battle, Jaden would receive gifts, cards and encouragement from various donors, many of whom remained anonymous. It is the support of these strangers that left an indelible impression on Jaden’s mind and heart, inspiring his vow to someday pay it forward.
On the long rides to and from Cook Children’s, Jaden would stare out the window and couldn’t help but notice the many homeless and underprivileged men, women and children living on the streets of DFW. It is during one of those rides on which Jaden stated to his parents that one day he would like to help the kids in the hospitals and the homeless. On his 9th birthday, Jaden told his parents that he would like to take his birthday money and give it to the homeless and hospitals. This act of loving generosity, from the heart of a child, led to the founding and establishment of Jaden Cares.
