In 1994, Ralph and MaryAnn
Napolitano established the Foundation,
aimed at raising funds to help support
the fight against childhood cancer, following their son Jason's successful
treatment for leukemia.
"Jay's World is dedicated to continuing its relationship with Winthrop and
the Cancer Center for Kids to support
an environment conducive to caring for
and curing children with cancer,"
explained Jason A. Napolitano, Jay's
World Foundation President.
Jay's World raises funding
through a variety of charity events,
including a basketball tournament.
