Why We Started the Jason Motte Foundation



The seed for the Jason Motte Foundation was planted in the fall of 2010 when Jason and Caitlin Motte asked, “What can we do to help?” At that time, Caitlin’s grandfather, Lynn Doyle, was battling Stage 4 lung cancer. A patient at The West Clinic in Memphis, Tennessee, Jason and Caitlin would sit with him during his treatments. While there, they saw a sign that mentioned a need for blankets and wondered what more they could do to help. That simple question led to the formation of the Strike Out Cancer with Jason Motte Gala and the Jason Motte Foundation.

The Jason Motte Foundation uses monies raised towards various research projects and programs all while providing comfort and care where there is a need for those affected, either directly or indirectly, by cancers of all kinds.
