Francesco Loccisano Foundation is just one of 35,000+ groups listed by members at iGive. Here's a little more detail on them, as provided by members or the organization itself:
Francesco Anthony Loccisano, who was also called Frankie, was a teenager who fought and succumbed to Osteosarcoma and Leukemia. As an older pediatric cancer patient, he greatly understood the enormity of what it meant for a child to be so ill and fighting for life instead of enjoying life. As Frankie fought with dignity, grace and courage, he vowed to develop his own foundation to reach out with open arms toward children who are fighting the most difficult trial of their lives.
In this spirit, our organization, which bears Frankie’s name and honors his memory, gives direct financial assistance to children while they and their families meet the challenges of a pediatric cancer diagnosis. While the children undergo life-saving treatments, The Francesco Loccisano Foundation helps to make the burden lighter by assistaing in various ways, such as help with medical bills, transport to the hospital and many other issues that might arise. A family should not have financial worries that might arise from their child's medical situation. Instead they should be able to focus on helping their child back to good health and happiness once again.
This was Frankie's Mission. Please be a part of it !
