12th Annual Hope & Heroes Walk

Team Maria

Ending childhood cancer and blood disorders is possible, together.

That’s why we are participating in the 12th Annual Hope & Heroes Walk on Saturday, September 10, 2022 at Pier 16.

As part of our Walk, we are fundraising to support Hope & Heroes which funds the life-saving work on childhood cancer and blood disorders in the New York region including innovative research, support for families, and care that always puts children first.  They are investing in medical research for tomorrow’s cures and helping make possible state-of-the-art clinical treatments today.

We want to participate in this event to honor Maria, a loving daughter and sister. Maria always cared about the well-being of others and we thought this is a great way to honor her and at the same time raise awareness of this wonderful charity. While Maria was being treated at Columbia University Medical Center, we saw first-hand the care and support that Hope & Heroes gave to the children receiving treatment and their families. We feel this is our opportunity to give back and help others. We know that this is something Maria would be happy for us to be a part of.

We hope we can count on you to help support our team for this great cause. 

DONATE TODAY using the link and make a difference. If you’re as passionate as we are about ending childhood cancer, you can also join our team! 

We are also proud to announce that our daughter Julia has recently published a children's book titled "Maria's Bedtime". Any proceeds that Julia receives will be donated to helping families and children battling pediatric cancer. The book is available through Amazon.com.

Thank you again. Together we will help children today and save lives tomorrow.  Together, we can end childhood cancer and blood disorders.
