- Grant Recipient Testimonials
"I'd like to thank say thank you and Merry Christmas to all at the Stephen A. Comunale, Jr. Family Cancer Foundation. I received help from you a few months back and wanted to let you know that it made a huge difference to me and my boys. The help with rent and groceries got me through until I was able to find a great full-time job. Even though I'm now working, I'm still catching up with some things but because of your generous gift, we're able to have a wonderful Christmas this year. Thank you so much and bless you all!

"Yesterday I received a phone call with the happy news that the Foundation had gotten my application and wanted to help. I could hardly believe what I was hearing. When I was told of all the ways you would help, I was just amazed. For November, our house payment and water bill would be paid. I would also receive a gift card for my prescriptions and all the food for my Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. Wow! I really don't know how to begin to thank you. This will go such a long way and I wanted you to know how very much it is appreciated. The Comunale Foundation is a true blessing. Thank you!
