Jack the Bitterroot Beagle Entertains Kids with Cancer
On July 14, 2009, famous Montana movie star, Jack the Bitterroot Beagle, will take a break from his busy filming schedule and visit nearly 40 children with cancer at Camp Mak-A-Dream.
According to John Williams, the director of Jack’s recent award-winning feature film, The Golden Bone, “we are so excited that Camp Mak-A-Dream invited us to spend some quality time with these wonderful kids. I know they will enjoy meeting Jack too.”
Jack is no stranger to cancer. During production of The Golden Bone, his co-star and best friend, Athena, was diagnosed with cancer. “It was a difficult time for all of us. Our hearts and prayers go out to all those with cancer, especially the children,” Williams said.
Jack and Williams will have many gifts for the kids, from framed production photographs to movie props, and even a specially-made, personalized movie for each child.
