Rose DiGangi Foundation - Supporting Brain Cancer Patients and their Families

Donation Goal: $25,000

In 2006, Rose DiGangi was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma, a malignant Brain Tumor. After a courageous battle, Rose passed away on October 20th, 2007. In her memory, the DiGangi Family has formed the Rose DiGangi Foundation. The Rose DiGangi Foundation (“RDF”), a 501(c)3, not-for-profit organization, is dedicated to minimizing the financial burden of families affected by brain cancer. Our mission is to provide patients and their families with the flexibility to focus on crucial medical care as well as their overall wellness. RDF will provide funding for immediate and vital assistance, such as paying household expenses and ancillary medical costs. RDF may also partner with other organizations to help fund brain tumor research. To date, the Rose DiGangi Foundation’s annual events have successfully raised funds and the net proceeds were donated towards brain tumor research & support. In celebration of Rose’s life and amazing spirit we will continue to help those who are fighting brain cancer. Every day, another 500 people in the United States are diagnosed with a brain tumor. Because brain tumors are located at the control center for thought, emotion and movement, their effects on an individual’s physical and cognitive abilities can be devastating. Progress has been made, but there is still so much that is not known.
