Club Care Co-Founder

Emma Justus co-founded Club Care when she was in sixth grade at Wagner middle school. She currently attends Beacon High School in New York City. She was inspired to create Club Care after her father was diagnosed with glioblastoma brain cancer. Unfortunately, he passed away after a two-year battle with the disease. He felt that “life should not be measured by time but by joyful moments.” She created Club Care to continue this legacy and change the lives of others in a similar situation.

Club Care Co-Founder

Calliope Witkow co-founded Club Care in sixth grade. Currently, she attends Lab High School in New York City. She was inspired to create Club Care to honor her dad who passed away when she was 5 ½ years old. He was born with Cystic Fibrosis and in turn had two double lung transplants and a kidney transplant. He passed away from throat cancer. Her father bestowed many life lessons upon her, but one she carries with her everyday is to always see the good in every situation, no matter how serious. She hopes to help and reward as many children and families as she can, ultimately leaving her mark and honoring the person who influenced her to begin Club Care.
