From financial grants to housing support, entertainment services to peer support, the HEADstrong Foundation is here to serve the needs of those who are battling cancer.

Here Is How We Help Improve the Lives of Those Fighting the Battle Against Cancer in Glenolden, PA
The HEADstrong Foundation was founded when Nick Colleluori, the founder of HEADstrong, received the life-changing diagnosis of Diffuse Large B-Cell non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2005. After this diagnosis, Nick made it his mission to help others who were fighting their own battle with cancer, and although Nick lost his battle to cancer in 2006, his legacy lives on in the HEADstrong Foundation. For over a decade, the HEADstrong Foundation has proudly been providing the following services to cancer patients and families living in Glenolden, PA:
Nick’s House: We provide complimentary lodging — which is located in the Philadelphia metropolitan area — for cancer patients and their families who are coming from out-of-town to receive cancer treatments at a hospital in the Greater Philadelphia, PA area.
Financial Service: Thanks to our donors, we are able to provide cancer patients who are experiencing financial hardships because of their cancer diagnosis with financial aid.
Entertainment: Our team brings the best elements of the family dinner table to cancer patients in a hospital located in the Greater Philadelphia area. By serving home-style meals, as well as providing recreational activities to cancer patients and their families, we are able to make their stay at the hospital a little bit more enjoyable.
Peer Support: Cancer patients and their families need many different kinds of support, and one form we offer is peer support. This means that we connect a recently diagnosed cancer patient with someone who has been battling cancer themselves, or with someone who has survived their cancer battle.
We have been able to provide our services and support to those who live in Glenolden, PA thanks to the individuals and organizations who donate their time and resources to our Foundation.
