Frank Sollecito, Jr. Leukemia Fund


Mission Statement " The specific purpose is to provide medical, financial and educational support for local families of children and young adults inflicted with cancer and other serious illnesses."

The Big Idea

We rely totally on donations mostly from our friends. Each year we spend almost all our funds. Magically we get donations at year's end to fill the coffers and continue our work.

We started this fund 29 years ago to help the Frank Sollecito family. Their son Frank, Jr. was very sick with a rare leukemia, sadly, their son died and we had left over funds so we decided to register as a 501C3 and help others. We never imagined we would be able to do this for all these years. We have always said when we run out of money we will then close up.... that hasn't happened yet!
