“I had the privilege of working with the Michael Magro foundation when i was with the cancer center for kids at Winthrop University Hospital. We had an annual Black and white ball 2010 that honored the Michael Magro foundation for the heroic work they do for children and their families. There are not enough words to describe their dedication, that was one of our best events ever.”
Linda Sweeney, Practice Manger

“On so many occasions I have personally seen how the assistance provided by the MMF has helped alleviate a family’s financial stress. Ultimately providing them with the most precious gift of being able to focus on and support their child during the most critical time”
Kaitlin Rowen, LMSW at Cohen’s Children Hospital

“If I say I have the words to describe how exactly this moment feels I will be lying…Terrie, I have received your check for $1000.
You have saved a family…a sinking boat, now I can be able to get some stuff for my kids when I was told Nathaniel had a relapse, I didn’t know what to do, what to think, how it was going to be, but with you doing this for us you have taken a big Burden off my shoulders. You have become our guardian.

Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart, I wish I could see you in person to tell you personally…. thank you.”

Joesephine, mother of child

“My name is Jessica and my daughter Kinsley was diagnosed with brain cancer a few days before her first birthday in December. We spent most of December at NYU Winthrop hospital and celebrated her first birthday and Christmas while there. Thanks to your foundation and the child life group at NYU Winthrop our daughter was able to have the best first birthday and Christmas possible given the circumstances.

This year for her birthday we want to ask everyone to donate to your foundation in lieu of birthday gifts.”
