Our mission is to raise funds in support of organizations offering programs that improve the emotional and mental health of children with cancer, veterans, and their families. We exist to fuel them with the resources, support and hope they need to overcome obstacles and pursue their dreams.

Frank has always believed in the power of dreams and in the importance of helping others who might need support to fulfill their own dreams. While growing up, he and his family experienced their own journey with pediatric cancer and sadly he lost his young sister to this terrible disease.  Frank also has great respect for those who serve our country, and feels veterans should have access to programs and resources which offer them hope and support. Both pediatric cancer patients and survivors, veterans, and their families often face isolation, anxiety, sadness and loss of independence. Frank and our Board of Directors want to help these brave heroes by raising funds to support innovative, therapeutic and transformational programs, so that they can get the support needed to ignite hope and fuel new dreams.
