That mission carries forward the desires of two young brothers, Jeffrey Hammond Horne, himself a victim of Acute Mylogenous Leukemia, and his younger brother and bone marrow/stem cell transplant donor, Brian Daniel Horne.

Jeffrey Horne succumbed to leukemia at the age of 20 years. Less than five months after losing his brother, Brian Horne died of sudden cardiac arrest and acute respiratory failure (a broken heart) at the age of 19.

Both young men were vocal in expressing the need for research for a cure and participated in a variety of charitable activities on behalf of this cause. At Jeffrey’s Voice, we know that the best way to help those struggling with leukemia and blood cancers today, and those yet to come, is to find a cure. So, we remain focused on the single goal of reaching the day when no more are lost to these diseases, the day when all remissions are permanent, and the day when there is a cure for all.

In 2010, Jeffrey’s Voice established the Jeffrey’s Voice Leukemia Research Fund at the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. Jeffrey’s Voice continues its support of this Fund that provides important assistance to research initiatives in the Bone Marrow Transplant Department at Emory.

Jeffrey’s Voice has not yet identified other organizations to which funds may be distributed in the future; however, in keeping with its mission to find a cure for these diseases, it will support promising leukemia and blood cancer research initiatives at various research Universities and/or research hospitals. All decisions regarding determination of recipient organizations and amounts of distributions are made by majority vote of the Board of Directors. For a research project to be considered, written proof of 501©3 status of an organization must be provided prior to distribution, and documentation that funds will be used solely for research initiatives for a cure for leukemia and blood cancers is required.

All donations made to Jeffrey’s Voice are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. To learn more about Jeffrey’s Voice and our mission to find a cure, please contact Nancy Horne at nhorne [at]
