Jacie's Kids of Long Island

Jacie’s Kids is a Long Island based charity focused on doing a world of good for Long Island children with cancer and their families. Founded in 2002 by Jacie Capuano, the charity began as a loving outreach from one cancer patient to another. While in the hospital for her own treatment for cancer, Jacie looked beyond her struggle to interact with children suffering from the same disease. In them she saw the hope and beauty of their spirit, and dedicated this charity and her life’s work to trying to make the world a little brighter for local children fighting cancer right here on Long Island.

Over the years, the charity has grown and now together with its Board Members continues on in Jacie’s honor, looking to make a difference to some of Long Island’s bravest and youngest souls as they undergo treatment on the way to a cure. We know that charity begins at home. We are looking for people with big hearts, that want to make a difference, in our own Long Island backyard.

Several Ways to Give

Donations Accepted

One of the things we like to do is donate money to children and their families, and sometimes we even use the money to buy equipment and games for children to play while they are in the hospital. We have corporate sponsorships and welcome private donations to provide many ways to make "our" kids smile.

Give a Gift

Our local kids and their families face many financial challenges while undergoing cancer treatment. We find ways, big and small, to help families, whether helping to defray a mortgage payment or treating the child and their family to a day at a local park or museum.



We know people want to help but may have different time constraints. We welcome any gift of time you are willing to give and offer a wide range of volunteer opportunities, from working a single event to becoming a committee chair or just sharing our information on social media with colleagues and friends.

Thank You for Your Generosity


We are a 501C3 and are entirely volunteer-driven, so every dollar you donate goes to help local Long Island children fighting childhood cancer.

We appreciate your willingness to help! Please feel free to make a donation of ANY size, and if you would like to be a corporate sponsor or make a donation in honor of a loved one, we’ll give you a shout-out and big smiles from “our” kids as a way to say thank you!

We have multiple ways to give.  Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity!

Jacie’s Kids is proud to help these great organizations care for Long Island children battling life-threatening diseases.

Helping to Make Ends Meet

Jacies Kids Recipient

This sweet young lady (center) and her family found themselves going for cancer treatments 5x a week and, with each visit, had a $50 deductible. Parking fees and the costs of ongoing care became burdensome. Your loving donations helped minimize this financial hardship so they could concentrate on getting this beauty back on her feet and well.

Helping to make ends meet is one of the ways that Jacie’s Kids tries to help support Long Island kids and their families to fight cancer and cope with the tremendous expenses that are part and parcel of going through treatment.  

Your donation, of any size, can help kids like this one have less stress knowing her family can better afford her treatment. 

For the Love of Family

Lots of hugs, snuggles, and thanks to our donors for making this young boy and his family’s life easier. Initially a patient at St. Judes, your support provided him and his parent's additional financial assistance while he continued outpatient treatment for his brain tumor. Thank you, donors!

We are all about helping families help kids struggling with cancer treatment.  Whether donations are used to purchase airline tickets to come to stay with a sick child or grandchild or used for other family activities that bring a smile to the face of a child that is in the middle of treatment, we love to do whatever our donations allow us to do for these courageous families!

Dancing for a Cure

Jacies Kids Recipient

This beautiful ballerina faced her cancer battle head-on with the determination to overcome the amputation of her leg to dance again. She is pursuing her passion and dancing as she continues healing from her surgeries and the ravages of treatment. Always a ray of sunshine, she is a force to be reckoned with on and off the dance floor. Thank you for all you’ve done, donors to help us, help Delaney.

If Delaney’s story inspires you and you would like to find a way to find other incredible kids like her, your Corporate Sponsorship or personal donation would be so appreciated.  For more information, check out our Sponsor & Volunteer page or donate using the buttons on the top left of the home page. 

Helping families in their time of need

New in town after moving from Ohio, this family got the devastating news that this little boy had cancer. With their family out west and no real support group on Long Island, Jacie’s Kids was a welcome friend in providing some financial support to help them during their time of need. Thank you, Long Island!

Being surrounded by people who love you and can make you laugh is a surefire way to keep our little cancer patients smiling and in a better frame-of-mind to face treatment.  Your donations can help us help them find this time with loved ones.  Would you consider donating today?
