Dear Friends and Family,
This foundation was created in loving memory of our Mom Lorraine Giordano. We created this foundation to raise awareness on brain radiation. We want everyone to know there are two types of brain radiation; spot radiation and whole brain radiation. Research both options and make the decision for yourself. Inform your doctor of your choice or they will choose for you.
Our family is fundraising to support Make-A-Wish New Jersey in memory of our mother Lorraine Giordano. She was a big supporter of children's causes and would have been thrilled that we are supporting this organization. In honor of our mom, we have set up this page on Make-A-Wish New Jersey's website. Please join us in helping to grant a child's wish - our goal is to help fund a wish once a year on her birthday. Through this, we hope to keep our mom's love, heart and spirit alive.
We have proudly granted the wishes of five beautiful children through this wonderful foundation which was set up to honor our Mom, (see pictures above).
Thea, age 5 who is suffering from Malignant Neoplasm of the brain: her wish was to visit Disney World, we granted her wish in December 2012.
Steven, age 11 who is suffering from Malignant Neoplasm of the brain; his wish was to meet Ryan Tannehill of the Miami Dolphins, we granted his wish in November 2013.
Our third child, Faith, age 5 is also suffering from Malignant Neoplasm of the brain. Her wish is to visit Disney World. We granted her wish in August 2015.
Our fourth child, John, age 9 is suffering from Leukemia. His wish is to go on a Disney Cruise. We granted his wish in 2018.
Our fifth child, Olivia, age 6 has cancer. Her wish was to "have a camper". We granted her wish in 2021.
Please help by contributing any amount you can - $30, $50, $100 or even more. Every dollar you donate can help Make-A-Wish recipients renew their courage and find a turning point in their lives.
