To Benefit the Barbara A. Colameco Cancer Transportation Fund
(Please make checks payable to Barbara A. Colameco Cancer Transportation Fund)


For the past ten years, Lou and Wellshire have dedicated a "Monte Carlo" Casino Night Fundraiser for the Barbara A. Colameco Cancer Transportation Fund. Lou's wife Barbara who, while in treatment herself for breast cancer, could not believe that people were missing appointments for treatment because they did not have transportation. It was for this reason the Fund was created.

The first year was a huge success raising funds for those in need of vouchers for transportation to and from treatment. Gaming included Blackjack, Craps, Texas Hold 'Em, Roulette, and a Money Wheel.

Last year, even more money was raised and it was again earmarked for the Cancer Transportation Fund, paying for the cost of baseline testing and for simple pharmacy needs of the patients. To date, over $600,000 has been raised.

In March 2010, Lou's wife Barbara passed away after a brave fight with breast cancer. In lieu of flowers, donations were requested on Barbara's behalf and the amount donated was staggering.

The Transportation Fund has been named in memory of Barbara, and will continue to help many people. Please visit our website, BACcancerFund.org for more information on the Fund.

If you know anyone who can benefit from this Fund, please contact Tina at info@baccancerfund.org and she will make arrangements.
