What is the Jane’s Legacy Foundation?

The Jane’s Legacy Foundation was created in memory of Jane Hale Jones who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2006, leaving behind a loving family and a legacy of positively and generosity. Jane's Legacy Foundation is her family's way of carrying on her spirit and supporting the causes that meant so much to her. Portions of the funds will go to breast cancer research, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the Hoffberger Breast Center at Mercy Hospital, a scholarship fund and other causes Jane supported.

Last year 400 proud supporters, joined many of our fellow Mariners at Jane’s Legacy’s 1st Annual New England Clam Bake & Bull Roast. Together we raised $35,000 to help raise awareness and support the fight against breast cancer.
