The Kranz Family......Jennifer... is why so many people now know the facts about Pediatric Cancer and why so many people including myself are not just sorry but ACTIVE!
Together we can make a difference. #love4jlk

My heart breaks for the Kranz Family. This is something no parent should have ever to go through. Children should be out palying, having fun, not slowly slipping away. Pediatric Cancer needs more funding.

Please Ellen bring this family to your show and get the word out!  I have been following from Nebraska since the nightmare for their family began.  Their precious angel, Jennifer, has used me in one instance as a way to let her family know she may be in heaven but she NO DOUBT still watches over her family!  This is a story about bravery of a little girl, determination of a family, and hope for a better future in pediatric cancer for all children who have yet to be diagnosed...  IF we can continue to spread the glitter, raise awareness, and TAKE ACTION!!!  I hope to meet this family one day.

Jennifer and the Kranz family are amazing! Ellen please bring them on your show so they can share Jennifer with you and spread the glitter! Because of Jennifer I have become ACTIVE! I no longer change the St. Jude's commercials because they upset me and thinking that cancer will never happen to my children. I am now spreading Jennifer's glitter all over the place because I have "healthy children....today". DIPG will UNRAVEL all cancers. Keeping spreading the glitter little girl! #love4jlk

With the Kranz family sharing Jennifer with us, the struggle after her diagnosis on her 6th birthday with DPIG...such an heartwrenching diagnosis, knowing that just 6 short years after her birth her fate was sealed by a diagnosis with no cure!I cannot imagine the pain that ripped through them that day and every day since. Because of Jennifer I have learned to spread the glitter (knowledge) and help them fundraise to find a cure....many people together can help to "Unravel" the cure to pediatric cancers, no families should have to go through this.

Jennifer and the Kranz family are amazing! Jennifer has made me realize the funding to DIPG and other pediatric cancers is way to under funded. Jennifer has helped us learn how to spread the glitter all over the country! I am now no longer a parent turning the channel to the St. Jude's commercials because they upset me and I don't think it could never happen to my children. I am now that ACTIVE parent that has a "healthy, normal child....today" helping Jennifer and the Kranz family spread the glitter! Jennifer will never be forgotten, like so many other children will not. We need a cure for DIPG so we can UNRAVEL all others. #love4jlk

This family is amazing, has suffered an unbearable loss and is working so very hard to ensure that more funding goes to Pediatric Cancer research.  4% is NOT enough. . .7 children dying every single day are too many.  Hoping to see The Kranz Family on Ellen. . .she has an amazing show and this is one amazing family!

The Kranz family is a constant inspiration to so many. Their message is the most important one. Pediatric cancer can be stopped with funding and research. We have to stop sitting around and start standing up for our children. There is no more important fight.

I was so touched by Jennifer's story when we were fluttered last year. My feeling is that we should donate as if it is our own child. We received a hand written thank you note from Jennifer's grandmother and it is something I will never forget. Our children will all benefit from the efforts of the Kranz family. Here's hoping the glitter sticks and spreads.

#forever6 the very hashtag breaks my heart.   no parent should have a child die. especially when there is a chance for a cure.  .01 of every dollar is unacceptable we need to get out and make people aware. spread the glitter NOT JUST SORRY BUT ACTIVE!  love and prayers for this very special family who turned a tragedy into something good.  for her.     #love4jlk

This family has touched my heart in ways I never could have imagined. Jennifer was such a beautiful little girl who didn't deserve this. I never knew the statistics, and like Libby says, once you know them, you can't un-know them. There needs to be a cure. Now!

I feel like the better part of Northern  California became family because of JLK.  Her memory will live on and through the hardwork of JLK's family we will hopefully find a cure!  It's inspiring to watch, being in a family dealing with the heartache of cancer I am not sorry anymore because we are active! JLK is a special little girl!

Kids are dying that don't have to. What's completely blows my mind is that it comes down to economics. Really? So if more kids were dying then more money would be spent to find a cure? That's a pretty sad commentary on our society. It all comes down to money. Thankfully the Kranz family is brave enough to take a stand, to raise awareness, and spread the word. I had no idea until I learned about JLK. Once you know it, you can't unknow it. Now what? DO SOMETHING!! And spread the word! #love4jlk #pediatriccancerawareness #findacure
