Providing hope and assistance to families of children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses is what CJ's Thumbs Up Foundation is all about. In speaking with the fund creator, Roger Reynolds, he stated, “we make unbearable situations a little more bearable. We don’t fix anything; we just assist to provide hope and to make the situation a little bit better. It’s amazing how it helps people’s minds.”
Children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses are beautiful both inward and out. In asking Roger how the slogan “Bald Chicks Rock” came about he stated, "When our daughter, Charlotte Jennie began losing her hair due to the toxic chemicals used to fight her large aggressive brain tumor, we didn't want it to become any more traumatic than it had to be. We did things like save her hair in a plastic bag so that we could give it to the squirrels to use for their nests. We also had an adult friend, Megan, who was going through her own cancer struggle and lost her hair at about the same time as Charlotte."
Megan's mother heard about Charlotte and stitched matching shirts for both of them that read, "bald chicks rock!"
