About Little Star
Little Star Foundation started because life showed a 15-year-old tennis phenom, Andrea Jaeger, that children facing cancer or trauma endure their struggles for more than one day. For over 34 years, Little Star Foundation has provided long term care and a better quality of life for children with cancer and children in need, their families and communities, through financial assistance, education, medical support, therapeutic play and outreach care programs.
Little Star participants find fuller lives, increase their motor skills and self-esteem and lead more engaging, purposeful and enjoyable lives, regardless of their diagnosis.
Andrea Jaeger became the #2 ranked professional tennis player in the world at the age of 16. She gave all her pro tennis earnings, (millions of dollars), to help others. For over 34 years Andrea Jaeger has devoted her life to bringing long term care and a better quality of life to children, families and communities in the United States and world facing disease, disaster, poverty and other devastating hardships.
