Mario Carpino’s 6th Annual Lemonade Stand, part of the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Children’s Cancer, is approaching! I can’t even tell you the countdown ’cause I’ll freak out, LOL. It’s something that I cannot even begin to tell you all the hard work and love we put into it.

Mario’s goal is $50,000 — we have a very long way to go still and Mario needs you! As a 12-year-old boy, the only thing Mario can do his to continue to be the loving and giving kid he is. He fights every single day! If you could find it in your heart to give back please do. Even $5 goes a long way! You can donate online, or mail c/o Mario’s Fight at PO Box 322 Swedesboro NJ 08085. Please let’s get Mario to his goal so a cure can be found!

A random act of kindness from the Bon Jovi community: Susan Craig purchased a Roseann Madia original oil painting of Mario’s hero and 2014 guest Jon Bon Jovi  to be raffled at Mario’s event! Let’s all show our support and appreciation for a job well done!

This is my mom Carol Cesario — the most loving and caring person you will ever meet. She is known as mom to a lot of people because she has taken care of so many kids. She has Stage 4 Lung Cancer, and her dream is to meet Jon Bon Jovi.

Since the 80s she has loved him. At one point when I was really young I thought he was my dad LOL. I remember dancing around our home to Bon Jovi with her when I was little and rocking out in the car with her on our way to the beach in Seaside NJ. When my dad told her he was in a bar around the block from her job, she literally ran there, but he was gone.

My mom has sacrificed so much for her children and family and friends. She helps anyone who needs it. She’s been in pain more than half my life, yet she made sure we had everything we needed but went without herself. If anyone deserves their dream to come true it’s her. Please share this everywhere and help a family give their mother her dying wish?
