The Jacquie Hirsch For A.L.L Foundation

176Jacquie was a 22 year old student at Geneseo State University and was just 2 months short of completing her student teaching requirements and receiving a degree in early childhood education.

She was suddenly diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (A.L.L) in September of 2007. “Jax” encountered many obstacles in her treatment and faught a very brave and courageous battle. She endured intense regiments of chemotherapy, radiation and two bone-marrow transplants at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo NY and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in NYC.

Jacquie was a caring, bright and thoughtful person whose presence and smile could brighten even the darkest day. She was also a miracle worker when it came to children. Her natural abilities and her patient disposition allowed her to reach children on a level that no one else could. Whether in the gym or in the classroom, Jacquie’s true calling in life was to educate and better the lives of children.

Despite a valiant and heartfelt effort by some of the most advanced and dedicated medical teams in the world, Jacquie was taken from us on September 6th, 2008.
