About this Project
Jeneece Edroff was three years old when she was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis type 1, a debilitating genetic disease that necessitated two surgeries and risked her ability to walk—and her life. Against all odds, Jeneece survived her doctors’ prognoses and became a champion of health for Island kids.
In 2009, Jeneece began fundraising for her own dream, Jeneece Place: a home-away-from-home for families traveling to Victoria for health care. Her bravery and perseverance rallied the community behind her, and she raised 95% of her $5.5 million goal in less than 14 months.
We have donated $2000 from our Chili Cookoff funds to Jeneece Place, a home away from home for families with children in the Victoria General Hospital.
