The Amanda Styles Cirelli Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. This foundation has been created in memory of Amanda (Mandy), who passed away nine years ago at the young age of 29 from a rare form of cancer. Her deep love for children has inspired the foundation’s mission to provide funding towards cutting-edge pediatric cancer research and to vital programs which help support pediatric cancer patients and their families.
We are proud to announce that ASCF is responsible for bringing the “Beads of Courage Program” to The Bristol-Meyers Squibb Children’s Hospital at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ and to The Valerie Center at Goryeb Children’s Hospital in Morristown, NJ. We have also helped local families In Long Island and New Jersey by assisting them with finances. ASCF has given gifts to state of the art facilities in New York such as Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the Cancer Center for Kids at Winthrop’s University Hospital and renowned facilities in Boston, MA including Children’s Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and The Jimmy Fund. These donations have truly made a difference in the lives of children fighting cancer.
