Since 2004, we have provided financial support to medical research, assisted students through scholarships and garnered financial and community support to help numerous children and families in need - all through the Michelle's Wish Mission.
The Michelle's Wish Foundation is a non-profit organization created to carry on the simple brilliance of lifelong wishes to help care for people in need - Michelle's Wish. Specifically, the Foundation, through various fundraising efforts, will seek to benefit worthy causes closest to Michelle's caring heart, including
Children - through a children's wish program and a children's scholarship program specifically dedicated to giving a truly memorable experience/gift or scholarships to children either with life-threatening illnesses or without financial means;
Education - through a scholarship program specifically dedicated to aiding aspiring nurses with a deeply compassionate interest In medical-related and bedside related care; and
Medical research - through a heart disease research and education fund.
These causes are those about which Michelle Cirino-DiCillo showed deepest concern. She was a dedicated wife, a loving and tireless mother of two young boys and a career-long nurse who suffered silently with a heart disease, which ultimately took her life at the young age of 33.
