The parents of Michael Napoleone established a foundation in his memory after he died in 2006 from Burkitt's Lymphoma/Leukemia, an aggressive form of blood cancer. During Michael’s yearlong illness, the community rallied around the family to assist with food, gas, medical bills and other necessities.
The foundation was created to give back to those who cared, to give forward to those in need, and to support research efforts in finding a cure for childhood cancer.
The foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization with the mission to “Lend a Hand for Hope” by:
assisting families whose children are undergoing cancer treatment with expenses related to hospital stays;
providing those children with support during treatment and the means to remain connected with school, family and friends;
supporting ongoing research efforts in pediatric blood cancers;
offering assistance to youth organizations and community sports programs in Michael’s memory.
