Our Mission

We are committed to improving and enhancing the quality of life of brain cancer patients, embracing the time we have with them, and raising hope for their treatments in the strong spirit in which Jeanine lived. 

The Jeanine Sheridan Foundation is run by Jeanine's mother, two cousins, and friend, who loved her dearly and want to commemorate her life by improving lives and raising hope. 

Please join us as we participate and host events throughout the year to raise money to support Children's Memorial and family's affected by the battle of Cancer.


In the past 10 years we have raised over $115,000 which has gone towards making a difference in the lives of nearly 200,000 patients treated at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago each year.

All proceeds benefit the Family Services Department of Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago to ensure all patients have access to the highest-quality care— every dollar raised means a brighter and healthier future for kids!

Events & Development and cousin. Assisting with coordination for annual events, initiating fundraising opportunities, and developing relationships for community involvement. Even though I was Jeanine's older cousin I always looked up to her for the beautiful person she was. I miss our special bond and the time together that was cut too short, but I know we will meet again. Always on my mind, forever in my heart.
