Cancer is a disease that knows no bounds or borders. The fight against childhood cancer is a battle that we share with everyone who is striving to improve the quality of life for sick children everywhere. The Michael Cuccione Foundation is honoured to provide funds to community groups, hospitals, and non-profit organizations across North America who share our dream in creating a world where all children are allowed to be children.
Despite being only a young child himself, Michael realized that it was children who harboured the hope and potential for a brighter tomorrow, both on medical and societal frontiers. The Foundation is proud to give back to local communities by providing financial support to students who exemplify Michael's positive outlook and unyielding drive to succeed in the face of adversity. Currently funding several annual scholarships to exceptional youth, the Michael Cuccione Foundation encourages the children of today to be the leaders of tomorrow.
All bursaries require that candidates are in high academic standing, are athletically involved, contribute to their communities, and will be furthering their education at a post-secondary institution upon graduation. The staff at each school selects the successful recipient.
