The Michael Napoleone Memorial Foundation, Inc., established in 2007, is in memory of Michael C. Napoleone, the eight year-old son of Mark and Laurie Napoleone from Batavia, NY who died from Burkitt’s Lymphoma/Leukemia, an aggressive form of blood cancer. During Michael's illness, the community rallied around the family to assist with food, gas, medical bills and other necessities.
The not-for-profit foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, was created to give back to those who cared, to give forward to those in need, and to support research efforts in finding a cure for childhood cancer.
