My Story

Joey Gangola was a sophomore at Delasalle High School when he was diagnosed with leukemia .  Immediately the school, church and hockey communities took action organizing fund raising to assist with Joey’s medical and school needs. The hockey community, which Joey had been  a part of for 9 years , volunteered there time to raise money for these organizations to help beat childhood cancer ! Joey was strong and fought hard for 14 months.  He was a hero to us all when he passed on November 30,2017.  Thank you for supporting  the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure.
