Who We Are
Love of Life (LOL) Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that creates events to help raise money for those in need founded by Jyl London. Jyl and her significant other, Bill Schuffenhauer, aim to help families with their struggles such as: cancer, hospitalization, homelessness, abuse, etc… We use activities to fundraise for the families with a goal to relieve the financial burden of the families who are affected by cancer, illness or other unfortunate circumstances.
- The impact cancer and diseases have on families
- The life-changing experiences that cancer or illness brings
- Providing accommodation and support services for all families
Jyl’s paternal grandmother passed away from a valiant fight with breast cancer the first of many to follow. Later she lost her aunt Sharlene to breast cancer and now this meant most of her Dad’s side of the family had been taken to cancer. A short time later her own thyroid started internally bleeding due to a tumor and was removed.
A close cousin of Jyl’s was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and died a shortly after. Just a few months later Jyl lost a man she idolized to cancer – her boss (Wayne Bates) and then two days later her own father (Wayne London) passed away suddenly from a massive heart-attack after a scope on his knee.
Jyl was in a serious car accident and bled internally for a week, along with several other damaging effects to her body. She knew life was short and to cherish it with those she loved. Right after ringing in the new year, Jyl’s mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and now with two people close to her in her family with cancer – both her mom and her aunt. Her goal to help was even stronger and Jyl decided to make her dream a reality and started her own charity. Because of Jyl’s charity work she found the man of her dreams (Bill Schuffenhauer) after asking him to help her with a charitable cause. The two of them live together in West Haven with their children. Later in 2013, her aunt Mary Beth, valiantly returned to fly with the angels and do her share of volunteering on the other side.
