On behalf of The Billy Fischer Cancer Research Fund, we’d like to thank all who participated at our fundraising party on Saturday, Nov. 5! A special thank you to John Zozzaro, Frankie Basile and Vincent Abbondandolo, owners of the Downtown Cafe, (located at 4 School Street in Glen Cove) where our event was held. The sun was shining outside and our hearts were glowing inside! The monies raised far exceeded our expectations! Together we raised more than $17,500! All of this money will directly benefit cancer research at the Steven and Alexander Cohen Children’s Medical Center in New Hyde Park (CCMC). CCMC is part of the North Shore-LIJ Health System of New York.
The Billy Fischer Cancer Research Fund was recently established and designed to support cancer research at CCMC where our amazing son Billy was successfully diagnosed and treated for two rare malignant brain tumors called Germinoma. Billy is cured and steadily healing. Our mission is to help cure all children stricken with cancer. We believe that “Every Child Deserves A Cure.”
We would like to also thank all of our generous friends, merchants and service providers for their time, support and donations. Our merchant donations helped create an amazing display of raffle prizes! Thank you to all who participated:
