The Saint Agatha Foundation was founded in 2004 to provide support, comfort and care to breast cancer patients. We help individuals—particularly the under-insured and uninsured—in the Central New York area by providing financial assistance to cover a range of costs for treatment and recovery.
The Saint Agatha Foundation
The Saint Agatha Foundation is dedicated to providing support, comfort and care to breast cancer patients.
Laurie Mezzalingua started the Saint Agatha Foundation in 2004 with the goal of helping breast cancer patients afford quality treatment and care for their disease. Since its inception, the Foundation distributed more than $X million to patients in need.
After more than a dozen years valiantly fighting against the disease, Laurie passed away from breast cancer in July 2009. Her legacy lives on through the patients in Central New York—particularly the under-insured and the uninsured—who are supported by grants from her foundation.
The Saint Agatha Foundation is a Supporting Organization under National Philanthropic Trust, a 501(c)(3) public charity.
