June News From Nick’s Mom
Dear HEADstrong Supporters,
It’s hard to believe that June is already behind us. It was a very busy month for the HEADstrong Foundation as our summer lacrosse teams are in full competition; players honing in on their lacrosse skills and families uniting together to promote HEADstrong awareness from the sidelines. We thank our “ambassadors” for representing the cause and carrying the ball where our Nick left off.
We are excited to share that we provided an experience of a lifetime for Jocelyn Nocito – 8th row tickets to see Taylor Swift in concert. Jocelyn, a huge Swifties fan, who has been battling cancer since the age of 2, now 17 she and her mom were able “Shake it Off” and dance the night away.
We are very pleased to report that 40 families, feeling the financial pinch of cancer, have benefitted from the Nicholas E. Colleluori Financial Assistance Program this month.
Special thanks to the incredibly talented Jessy Kyle for performing for the inpatient population at our HEADtable’s Jazz Night. It was a very special evening and I quote one of the patients that attended, “I looked forward to this all day, it was just the cheering up that I needed”. We think that says it all.
The HEADstrong Foundation relies on your support to sustain its mission, please consider making a gift so that others may benefit from the life of our founder, Nicholas. headstrong.org/donate.
Thank you so much.
Cheryl A. Colleluori
