Welcome to the Anthony Poselovich Memorial Foundation of Rochester, NY.
My wife Cathi and I created the Foundation in honor of our son, Anthony, who passed away November 8, 2010 as a result of complications from hepatoblastoma. Hepatoblastoma is an extremely rare childhood liver cancer that affects roughly 1 out of every 1,000,000 children born in North America every year.
Anthony was born on March 15, 2006 and was diagnosed at 11 months old on February 20, 2007. He fought bravely for almost four years, enduring countless rounds of chemotherapy, a liver transplant, and numerous surgeries to remove metastatic tumors from his lungs and lymph nodes. He also survived two life threatening infections during his long, tough battle.
Throughout the course of his illness, Anthony remained a constant source of inspiration and strength. As you can see from the pictures, he was always laughing, smiling, joking, and having fun no matter the circumstances. Most importantly, Anthony was a loving and caring little boy who, even at the tender age of four, always put the feelings and the welfare of others before his own. He hated to see people upset or suffering, and he would do whatever it took to ease their trouble and put a smile on their face. He always succeeded. We’re quite sure had he lived, he would have dedicated his life to helping others in some fashion.
The mission of the Anthony J. Poselovich Foundation is to assist families with children up to age 5 who have been diagnosed with cancer and are in financial need. Our goals are to supplement unpaid medical expenses, funeral and obituary costs, as well as to fund activities to be done with siblings.
Please feel free to make a donation or register for an upcoming event on our site. We look forward to seeing you soon. Together we can make life easier for those who are suffering and in need of our help.
