Teens Lose Their Dad to Cancer. Then, the unthinkable, their mom dies of Cancer too. On top of all that they were targeted victims of theft! WHAT DID WE DO FOR THEM?
Nicole (19) and twins Anthony and Louis (18) Timpanaro have been through more than most adults. When they were 12 & 13 yrs old their beloved dad lost a long battle with cancer.
Unbelievably, the kids’ loving mother Theresa also got cancer a couple years later. Theresa died in February of this year leaving the kids orphaned and to live life without a mom or a dad.
After losing their second parent, an acquaintance started a GoFundMe fundraiser for the kids using their tragedy to collect over $10,000 in donations. The “friend” spent all of the money but $1,000 by the time the kids realized they never got the money intended for them. They were targeted victims of theft.
Today, we made it right for the Timpanaro kids. Our director Nick McCormick paid a visit to their home, delivered a check for $9,000 from Bianca’s Kids (replacing every dollar stollen from them). As the kids are huge New York jet fans, we contacted our friends at the Jets who gave us3 tickets in a private suite for a Jets’ game in December. Thanks to a supporter, a $50 gift card to Lane Bryant for Nichole finalized this wish package.
The kids were THRILLED! and so were we.
