The HEADstrong Foundation was founded in 2007, and since then, we have been providing cancer patients and their family members with services and support that help improve lives. We help improve the lives of those affected by cancer by providing financial grants, housing support, entertainment services and support from peers. If you or a loved one are seeking cancer treatments in the Greater Philadelphia area, and you are looking to make your life as comfortable, happy and stress-free as possible, then the HEADstrong Foundation is here to help.
We Want to Improve the Lives of Those Battling Cancer in Ridley Park, PA — Here Is How We Do That
The HEADstrong Foundation was born when Nick Colleluori, the founder of HEADstrong, was diagnosed with Diffuse Large B-Cell non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2005. After receiving this diagnosis, Nick decided he was going to do everything he could to help those who were fighting their own cancer battle. Nick sadly lost his battle to cancer in 2006, but thanks to the HEADstrong Foundation, his mission and legacy lives on. The HEADstrong Foundation has been proudly serving cancer patients in Ridley Park, PA — as well as its surrounding areas — for over a decade. Here are the services we provide to cancer patients, as well as their family members, living in Ridley Park, PA:
Nick’s House: Because many people travel to hospitals in the Greater Philadelphia, PA area for cancer treatments, we offer complimentary lodging to those who are coming 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.
Financial Service: While a cancer diagnosis takes a physical and mental toll on a person’s life, it also creates a financial burden — that is why, thanks to our donors, we provide financial support to cancer patients or families affected by cancer.
Entertainment: We bring the best elements of the family dinner table to cancer patients who are staying in a hospital in the Greater Philadelphia area. From serving home-style meals to providing recreational activities, we do everything we can to make their stay in the hospital as enjoyable as possible.
Peer Support: Over the years, we have seen how beneficial it is for newly diagnosed cancer patients to have the support of someone who has been battling cancer for awhile or who has beaten their cancer diagnosis. Because of this, we connect newly diagnosed cancer patients with those who have or are gone through a similar experience.
We are able to provide our services and support to those who live in Ridley Park, PA thanks to our amazing team, as well as the individuals and organizations who donate their time and resources to the HEADstrong Foundation.
