The Southern Lehigh Boys’ and Girls’ Lacrosse teams, along with the Emmaus Boys’ and Girls’ Lacrosse teams, will be dedicating their games on April 21 at Emmaus Memorial Field to the HEADstrong and Pancreatic Foundation, two worthy causes, by selling t-shirts and raffling off items during the game. All of all money raised will be shared with both organizations.

The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is the national organization creating hope in a comprehensive way through research, patient support, community outreach, and government advocacy. The organization raises money for direct private funding of research—and advocates for more aggressive federal research funding of medical breakthroughs in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of pancreatic cancer.

The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network fills the void of information and options by giving patients and caregivers reliable, personalized information they need to make informed decisions. The organizations helps support individuals and communities all across the country in working together to raise awareness and funds to develop more effective treatment options for better patient outcomes. We create a sense of hope and community so no one has to face pancreatic cancer alone.

HEADStrong™ is an non-profit organization that serves the cancer community by granting direct financial assistance to those financially impacted as a result of the disease, by providing complimentary long-term housing and amenities for those displaced to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for comprehensive cancer care and clinic trials through Nick’s House, by funding innovative cancer research through the Nicholas E. Colleluori Lymphoma research fund, by serving family meals and offering outlets of entertainment, by providing fresh groceries to patients being discharged from lengthy hospital stays, by delivering comfort kits to newly hospitalized patients preparing for treatment or transplant, and by lending an arm of support through their peer to peer advocacy group.

The blueprints for the Foundation were conceptualized by Nicholas “HEAD” Colleluori in 2006, from his hospital bed while he underwent treatment for non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, which ultimately clamied his life. Today, Nick’s vision is being fulfilled through the relentless efforts of his family, athletes, and supports across the country uniting in the fight against cancers.
