The CUREchief Foundation, founded by members of Cheshire's Centorino family , have been providing hope to cancer patients for years. The group provides kerchief's to cancer patients who have lost the majority of their hair, along with those suffering from other conditions that result in hair loss.
Now, one of the co-founders of the Foundation is hoping to spread the message of hope even further.
Stephanie Centorino, a senior business technology major at the University of Connecticut, has been nominated for the Heroes With a Heart grant award. Centorino is one of 65 national finalists for the $5,000 award, which is offered by the non-profit foundation, Community Techknowledge.
The winner of the award is based on the number of votes each individual receives via the Internet.
If successful in securing the grant, Centorino plans to begin a new program called Instant Messages, where cards, designed by individuals from all over the world, would be delivered to people all over the world.
