In Loving Memory

About Felix JT

Felix was a special and brave young person

Felix was an iCAN Youth Member from the inception, joining his fellow youth members at the first iCAN Research & Annual Summit held in Washington, D.C. in 2015.  After the first Summit, Felix was instrumental in each following year and helped to bring the Summit to his hometown of Barcelona, Spain in 2016. Along with his global work, Felix was the former president of KIDS Barcelona and helped within many committees and groups throughout iCAN Research.  His passion, energy and love of helping others lives on through his legacy.  By sharing the opportunity to earn a scholarship through the Felix Junquera-Tajeda Scholarship, Felix continues to encourage his family and friends to be advocates and fighters against rare pediatric cancers and other chronic diseases.  In memory of Felix, iCAN Leadership created a youth scholarship in his name to be awarded yearly to one recipient based a number of criteria, including an essay.  Details to be provided each spring.
