2019-2020 Annual Highlights



I received super great news from our FF  warrior Grace “Cookie” West from Freehold. After a long-time battle, then a relapse, and another very  tough battle , Cookie’s scans are finally & officially clear !!!!


Cookie is very excited, and so are we,  so join me in congratulating Cookie & we couldn’t be happier and more excited for and with her.


As a friendly reminder, Cookie was a co-host of our October 2020 Virtual Gala along with her buddy FF Jr. Trustee Sydney Rubman. See attached photo. Cookie’s fight goes back to 2014 or so ( maybe earlier) ; & attached is a photo of Cookie with our angel Sami on the Santa cruise in December 2015, almost 6 years ago. This fall Cookie will be going to college at NYU !!


We will celebrate this great news with Cookie, and more warriors, at our Saturday, July 10th  picnic and softball tournament.



         Last night the Frances Foundation trustees hosted a dinner reception at which we celebrated another year of bringing smiles and assistance to our pediatric cancer warriors and their families.

Because of your generous financial support, and the dedication and commitment of our trustees, the FF has personally delivered more than $600,000 in smiles and assistance during these last 2 devastating pandemic years.  


It was our honor to recognize a few of our warriors, including warrior McKenzy Hupke as our 2021 Warrior of the Year. Trustee Cathy Shalloo was honored as our 2021 Volunteer of the Year, and Obi Wand as our 2021 Jr. Trustee of the Year; as well as a special recognition award to AmWins Brokerage Of NJ and the Ciccarelli Family .
