Chase Jones, Founder
Chase experienced the childhood cancer world first-hand; in 2006, as an eighteen-year-old college freshman, he was diagnosed with Stage IV brain cancer.
As a byproduct of community help and national research, Chase attests his status of six years cancer-free to a combination of the two.
Since beating cancer, Chase has had the chance to collaborate with multiple childhood cancer organizations, from local children’s hospitals to international efforts in the constant battle to help more kids. After being treated at the NC Children’s Hospital, Chase went on to work with Ronald McDonald Charities, LIVESTRONG, and the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
In college, Chase founded BaseBald, enabling student-athletes a platform to give back to childhood cancer, which grew to connect dozens of communities and thousands of supporters to donate to childhood cancer research.
In 2013, the Office of the Governor of the State of North Carolina named Chase to the North Carolina Advisory Committee on Cancer Coordination and Control.
Chase is a 2011 graduate from the University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School. He is a Christ follower, former collegiate baseball player with the UNC Tar Heels, and lives in Raleigh, North Carolina.
