The Ending Cancer in Our Generation Foundation


Jetty started working on her book: Jetty’s Brain Book with her diagnosis of Glioblastoma Multiforme (brain cancer) and she knew she wanted to make a website with it as well. She developed Jetty’s Brain Book the Website in early 2010. In early 2009, she started her dream of Lagomorph Studios, a contract art studio where they make art for anyone with a dream and in early 2011 it received a formal overhaul. Now, both of her dreams have combined to form The Ending Cancer in Our Generation Foundation so that she can offer a place of understanding and encouragement through art. There are no bad pieces here and everyone is an artist no matter what doubts may be present. In 2010, ECIOG has its first annual Silent Auction and Benefit concert to raise money and awareness for young adult cancer. It had 51 baskets of donated items and had 4 bands playing including Derrick Hart and Animals Against Cancer and Alexa Wilkinson. In 2011, it has its first official benefit with over 77 baskets. This is an annual tradition to raise money for ECIOG as well as other top names in the fight against young adult cancer. So, click around and take a look at the art. Think about purchasing The Art of Fighting Cancer; an art book of cancer related pieces that explore the world of cancer through the art of a survivor. All proceeds of the book go to ECIOG and the mission of helping survivors.  She has a degree in Fine Arts and her passion lies in video games and 3D modeling. Her dream is to work in the video game industry and make games that are accessible for everyone.
