STATEMENT FROM THE Executive Director

"My husband and I founded the Alicia Rose Victorious Foundation over 10 years ago.  What began with experiences of our 16 year old daughter had during her 13 month treatments and inpatient stays at CHOP in 2003, we now support 83 children's hospitals throughout the country.  Its hard to believe the overwhelming impact and success of our foundation serving over 75,000 teens that have cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.  2010 Represented a milestone year for us, as Governor Chris Christie signed State Joint Resolution 14, designating the 3rd week in January as Teen Cancer Awareness Week.  We spent the week of Jan. 18-22 visiting our 10 New Jersey Children's Hospitals and meeting with the medical staff, and caretakers of this special population.  Most exciting was socializing with survivor teens and networking with their peers. In these tough economic times we realize that there may not be as much to go around, but every bit of support makes a big difference in the lives we touch.  With your support we can continue to provide courage and comfort to the many  faces of courage as they undertake the most difficult time in their life."
