About JWF

Ickey and Chandra Woods lost their young, 16-year-old son Jovante due to complications of an Asthma attack. Due to their devastating loss, and what they found to be limited resources, education, and action available to those with asthma and their loved ones. They were determined to make a difference and thus the Jovante Woods Foundation was born.  The Jovante Woods Foundation’s goal is to try and prevent the tragic loss of a loved one due to an Asthma attack or the lack of education during an Asthma attack. After losing Jovante and realizing there was not enough advocacy or personal education for Asthma as the number one chronic condition in children and takes 11 lives per day...we took action!

Education - Action for Asthma

We work with local schools and communities to take Asthma seriously. Diligently working toward early detection for all children. We work with local Children’s Hospitals, Pulmonary, Asthma and Asthma research divisions on a better way to treat Asthma, better ways to educate our communities as well as hopefully work toward a cure one day. Our goal is to have mobile health check units in every county in the United States to provide an opportunity for everyone to have free access to basic checkups for the purpose of early detection.

Organ Donation

As part of the tragedy of losing their child, Ickey and Chandra honored the wish of their young son Jovante and donated his organs. Unbeknownst to his parents Jovante had checked the organ donation box on his driver's license. He saved 4 lives and helped countless others through tissue donation. We work with local schools and communities educating young people on the importance of organ donation.
