Ulti-Mate Delivers a Heartwarming Christmas Surprise for the Just Because Foundation

Christmas came early this year.

Ulti-Mate brings us some Christmas magic this year, for the children and families of The Just Because Foundation, and it’s a tear jerker.

We won’t spoil the video for you, but there’s something about Christmas magic being delivered to those who need it the most that really makes us enjoy this piece so much. Families were treated to a Christmas-themed celebration filled with music, laughter, good food, and, of course, gifts.

Organizers say the idea behind the event was a celebration of shared values—bringing some holiday magic to children and their families.

The Just Because Foundation (JBF) is a non-profit organization that supports children and families of children suffering from paediatric cancer. JBF was founded by Noel and Chevaughn Joseph in 2007, after the passing of their son Jabez, from Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of childhood cancer. JBF supports affected families with the Caribbean’s first multi-disciplinary, family-centred children’s ward at the Wendy Fitzwilliam Paediatric Hospital, Mount Hope. In addition, they offer resources and a sense of community, including the use of their “home away from home” in Diego Martin. At this residence, families can benefit from group therapy, sharing their experiences with others facing similar challenges.

“Noel and Chevaughn have dedicated their time and effort to the support of families in need. We at Ulti-Mate continue to be humbled by our partnership with people who share our values of family, community, and the protection of our loved ones.” says Robert Marfleet, CEO of Ulti-Mate.

The success of organizations such as the JBF is heavily reliant on our ability to forge tangible and sustainable relationships with various partners who understand our mission to do what we can, whenever we can, to make this tough journey a little easier for children with cancer and their families.” says Noel.

Their work is an ongoing process, but organizers say that the effort spent to treat the children and their families with an afternoon of socializing and seasonal surprises pays dividends in creating stronger, more compassionate communities.
