The HEADstrong Foundation gives cancer patients a place to call home through “Nick’s House”
14 DECEMBER 2017
SWARTHMORE, PA – A long-time friend of the Colleluori family, Frank Kelly III, CEO of Kelly & Associates Insurance Group (KELLY) was blessed to attend the HEADstrong Foundation’s dedication of Nick’s House on Wednesday, December 13th.
The HEADstrong Foundation was founded by Nicholas Colleluori in 2005 after being diagnosed with Diffuse Large B-Cell non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a blood cancer affecting the lymphatic system. Nick endured a 14-month battle with cancer before he passed in November of 2006. His last wish was for cancer patients to benefit from his journey through the HEADstrong Foundation.
Since his passing, the Foundation has come together to help cancer patients and their families receive the valuable resources they need. Nick’s House provides complimentary lodging for out-of-town patients and their families who are undergoing cancer treatments in the Philadelphia metropolitan area. It is not a medical facility but a guest house designed to meet the unique needs of patients and their families, it is a place they can call home.
The Foundation has done amazing things for those diagnosed with cancer and KELLY will continue to uphold Nick’s last wish in any way they can.
