In October 2006, the Franceschini family of Albertson hosted the Debra Ann Franceschini Memorial Golf Outing at Wheatley Hills Country Club in East Williston to raise money to launch a colon cancer research project at Winthrop. The event raised approximately $40,000. The colon cancer research project, headed by David Friedel, MD, of the Hospital's Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, will involve encouraging select patients hospitalized at Winthrop to agree to a routine screening colonoscopy and the exploration of attitudes and opinions concerning the disease.
Mr. Robert Franceschini (second from left) and sons Robert (far left) and James (second from right) join Dr. Mark Weinblatt (center), Chief, Division of Pediatric Hematology/ Oncology and Director of Winthrop's Cancer Center for Kids and John Broder, Winthrop's Vice President, External Affairs & Development, to dedicate a room at Winthrop's Cancer Center for Kids in memory of wife and mother Debra Ann Franceschini.
The Franceschini family owns and operates Piccolo's Restaurant on Jericho Turnpike in Mineola. A fundraiser held at Piccolo's during the summer raised approximately $14,000 for Winthrop's Cancer Center for Kids, where a treatment room has been dedicated to the memory of wife and mother Debra Ann.
