By providing financial grants, housing support, entertainment services and peer support, we do everything we can to help make a positive difference in the lives of cancer patients and their family members.

Here Is What We Do to Improve the Lives of Those Battling Cancer in Swarthmore, PA

Nick Colleluori, the founder of HEADstrong, was diagnosed with Diffuse Large B-Cell non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2005. After receiving this diagnosis, Nick’s mission was to do what he could to help others who were also battling cancer. Sadly, Nick lost his battle to cancer in 2006, but his family promised to fulfill his mission. The HEADstrong Foundation was born, and it has been helping cancer patients in Swarthmore, PA — as well as its surrounding areas — ever since. Here are the services that we provide to cancer patients, as well as their family members, who are living in Swarthmore, PA:

  • Nick’s House: Because the Greater Philadelphia, PA area is home to 7 nationally ranked hospitals with high-performing cancer care facilities, we offer complimentary lodging to those who are coming from out-of-town for cancer treatments. Nick’s House is located in the Philadelphia metropolitan area, and it is available to cancer patients and their family members.
  • Financial Service: This program grants financial aid to patients and families who are experiencing financial hardship due to their cancer diagnosis.
  • Entertainment: We bring the best elements of the family dinner table to cancer patients who are staying in a hospital. By serving home-style meals and providing recreational activities, we help make their stay in the hospital as enjoyable as possible.
  • Peer Support: Over the years, we have seen firsthand how helpful it is for newly diagnosed cancer patients to have peer support — that is why we connect newly diagnosed cancer patients with those who have gone or are going through a similar experience.
  • Thanks to our hardworking team and amazing donors and partners, we are able to provide our services and support to those who live in Swarthmore, PA.
