As a very close-knit family, we experienced the devastating effects of both cancer and ALS with the loss of 3 amazing individuals. In their memory, we decided to start this foundation as a way to help other families fight these diseases in a hope for a cure. With various fundraisers throughout the year, we are able to sponsor 2 rooms at the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House Adopt-a-Room program as well as other donations and scholarships to local families.
