Our beautiful and strong mother, Josephine "Josie" Faienza, suddenly passed away on July 28th due to stage 4 breast cancer at 49 years old. 

In honor of our mother and her fight with breast cancer we will be raising money for the American Cancer Society. If you knew our mother you know how much of an advocate she was for women and men because like she always said “cancer doesn’t discriminate.” 

Mom always shared her journey with others because she said “if I can help one person then it was all worth it." She’d always push women to go and get their mammograms done. Even when mom was sick her concern always remained on the well being of others. That’s just who she was. When provided the opportunity, she always shared her story with others in front of a big audience in hopes of saving others from this disease. 

Our family, our mother, individuals who are currently fighting or have fought cancer, and loved ones who act as the support team for those diagnosed with cancer, truly understand the physical, mental, and financial toll cancer has.

We can only hope that one day in the future when someone hears “you have cancer” that they will not have to worry. Until that time comes what we can do now is honor those who have fought and are currently fighting cancer by raising money so that we may eventually reach that point.  

Every year since our mothers diagnosis she would raise money for the event on her Facebook and our family would walk it to honor her fight with cancer. This year, our family invites you to walk in our mothers honor. We also ask that you donate.  

Thank you again for all the love and support during these times. Our family appreciates it and we know our mother does as well. 

Lastly, in the words of our mother…"fuck cancer.”

How Fundraising Impacts Your Community

Cancer hits far too close to home, so the funds you raise will help do the same. Through services and resources like free rides to chemo, free places to stay near hospitals, and a live 24/7 helpline, cancer patients and their families will feel the love. Here’s how recent money raised has been put to incredible uses.

As of January 2022, we have invested $71 M for potentially lifesaving breast cancer specific research grants.

We have received over 250,000 calls and chats from patients and caregivers seeking support in 2021

Cancer patients benefited from ACS transportation support through our Road TO Recovery program and transportation grants in 2021, with nearly 229,000 rides provided.

Our Sponsors

Many thanks to our generous sponsors for fueling the American Cancer Society's fight against breast cancer.

Welcome to our Team Page. We've formed a team because this cause is important to us. We want to help. And walking and raising money in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is the best way we can do that. We all have different reasons for participating but we share a determination to help save lives from breast cancer.

There are so many ways that the money our team raises helps. It’s helping fund innovative research. It's providing free information for people dealing with the disease. It’s providing rides to treatment and places to stay for people who have to seek treatment far from home. In short, our money is helping save lives. Consider donating to our team and helping advance the cause.

How We Support the American Cancer Society

Of course we walk in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. And we solicit donations from family, friends, and other supporters. But we also schedule fundraisers in lead-up to the big event. Bake-sales, car washes, and countless other types of events. And we promote those on social media, through Facebook and Twitter, by word of mouth, and through flyers at work and around the neighborhood. The success of fundraising events depends on two things - hard work and getting the word out. And we're out to do both. Keep an eye out for our fundraising events.

Join us. Donate today. Or walk with us.
