9th Mario Carpino Child Cancer Fundraiser; THE MAX Challenge/Trevor Project Supports LGBTQ Health

We are $3,160 away from our goal!

Mario Carpino of Sewell NJ has been battling brain tumors since he was four. He’s here today because of the treatments he received at Children’s Specialized Hospital. Without all his treatments, he wouldn’t be here, and I thank God every single day that all those treatments shrunk his tumors and kept them stable!

I am deeply saddened and heartbroken because he lost to many friends to this disease. We fight in their memory, and in honor of all those children who fight every day!

Mario hasn’t stopped fighting for a cure since he was diagnosed! He’s faced so many challenges along the way. Despite everything he has been throughv he fights every day & helps raise money for Alex’s Lemonade! We have been blessed to have raised $436,991 since 2011!

Please find it in your hearts to donate. It only takes one dollar to make a difference — these children cannot fight alone!

Mario’s interview with Ukee Washington of CBS News Philadelphia will air Thursday, June 13 during the Alex Scott Telethon.
