John Travolta Announces New Foundation

John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston have been mourning the loss of their son Jett, but they've found a way to turn their grief into help for others.

The loving parents have announced that they will create a foundation in honor of their late son.

The Jett Travolta Foundation will help "assist and provide relief to children with vision, hearing, mobility, communication, behavioral learning impairments or other special medical, environmental, health or education needs," the statement read on Travolta's official Web site.

Jett died on January 2 while on vacation with his family in the Bahamas. He died from a seizure disorder. He was only 16-years old.
