THE PAULIE STRONG FOUNDATION
The Mission of the Paulie Strong Foundation is to continue raising awareness and funding for pediatric cancer research.
In October 2015, Paul was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare cancer that forms on soft tissue. It ultimately took his life after just 2 and half months on January 5th 2016.
Paul was such a happy and loving child. We will forever remember his infectious smile and laugh. He saw the good in everybody and anyone who was lucky enough to have met him instantly knew how special he was.
Paul was wise beyond his years and it was his idea when he was diagnosed to create a campaign to raise funds to find a cure for cancer. We learned a lot about the lack of funding that goes to help find a cure for pediatric cancer and we will continue Paulie’s mission to raise awareness and raise funding to help all children who have to endure battles with cancer. This disease cannot be allowed to continue to take our children from us.
PaulieStrong is not just a name of the foundation or slogan for t-shirt. #PaulieStrong is how we will live every day that we have let on this earth. Cancer is the #1 disease killer of children in the United States according to the National Cancer Institute, with nearly 16,000 children and adolescents diagnosed each year. And yet, less than 4 percent of all funding from the National Cancer Institute goes to research into childhood cancers. Most clinical trials are to treat adults.
In the last 20 years, only two major drugs have been developed for children. Funds raised through The PaulieStrong Foundation will go directly to the Pediatric Oncology Team at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NYC to help fund research into pediatric sarcomas. Whether you are able to give now or not, helping us spread the word about our cause would be greatly appreciated. Together we can make a difference.

The mission of Scarsdale & Edgemont Family Counseling Service is to strengthen family and community life by providing individual, family and group therapy; outreach to youth; services to older adults; and public programs relating to family life issues.

A non-profit member agency of Alliance for Families and Children and the United Way of Westchester-Putnam, SFCS has always been there for the community when needed. The SFCS professional staff is licensed in New York State as providers of mental health services.
WARRIOR & FAMILY ASSISTANCE FUND
When people think of a wounded service member, they just think about that individual, but it is also the family of that service member that has to deal with this life changing event. It becomes a recovery and healing issue for the entire family. And while the medical care available to these troops is administered swiftly and reliably at Walter Reed, the support surrounding it is not always commensurate with the needs of the wounded soldiers and their families.
These wounded soldiers face a long recovery process as they begin to transition into lives drastically altered by their call to service. Spending time with family members is an integral part of their healing process.
Members of the Scarsdale Police Benevolent Association (PBA) have visited Walter Reed and seen firsthand the sacrifices made by these service members. It inspired the members to form the Warrior & Family Assistance Fund. Through this fund, we work with the Soldier Family Assistance Center at Walter Reed and at West Point to assist them in meeting the immediate needs of the wounded and their families.
100% of the funds raised for the Scarsdale PBA’s Warrior & Family Assistance Fund go to help the wounded service members and their families.
