In Alex Mandarino’s five fleeting years he left an indelible imprint in the hearts of his family, friends, medical caregivers and community. His short but courageous life inspired us to create The Alex Mandarino Foundation. Through this foundation he will make his footprint on thousands of lives overcome by childhood cancer.

This foundation is passionately dedicated to funding research for a cure to childhood cancer. It is also committed to providing financial assistance to families in Southwest Michigan whose children have cancer. We want to end the devastation these diseases wreak. Please help us bring hope to children fighting cancer today and to all those who will be thrust in this fight tomorrow.
