Matthew Fetzer Foundation Fulfills a Wish to Help Children Fighting Cancer

NYU Winthrop Hospital was a second home to the Fetzer family of Bayville, NY, for many months while their son, Matthew, underwent cancer treatment. In honor of Matthew, who lost his battle with cancer in 2005, the Fetzer family created the Matthew Fetzer Foundation, fulfilling their son's wish of helping other children with cancer.

"It was Matthew's wish to deliver toys to the children and that's what we're doing for him. We are working very hard to honor his wish," said his mother, Ann Fetzer, who has visited the Hospital more than 20 times over the past five years to deliver toys. The Foundation also hosts parties and other events and provides financial and emotional support to those affected by childhood cancer, visiting many locations throughout the Long Island and New York City area.

"The Fetzer family has become not only a very generous donor to our program but also welcome friends throughout the years," said Nicole Almeida, MS, CCLS, Director of the Child Life Program at NYU Winthrop. "They continue to provide the children and their families countless smiles with their visits. They are extremely thoughtful and always provide special 'treats' for each family member, including on celebrations for Mother's Day, Father's Day and the majority of the holidays throughout the year. We look forward to working with them for years to come."
