WHO WE ARE

 

Why do we fund care for families in need?

In short, because we've been there. In early 2016, Ryan Saturno was taken from us after a long and strong fight with soft-tissue cancer at age 26. A fund was created shortly after in his memory by his family and close friends in an effort to help alleviate the financial and emotional strain on families that are going through a similar journey. To learn more about the man who we do this all for, click his picture.

What do we fund care for?

Families with children or young adults aged 0-18 going through a battle with any cancer related illness within Ontario.

How do we fund care for families in need?

We organize an ongoing annual golf tournament and other fundraising events; and accept donations from corporations, organizations, and private citizens. We also partner with many organizations that align with our mission to provide assistance to families in need with a goal to maximum the effectiveness of our dollar through as little financial waste as possible.

CEAZON'S FAMILY

"It's amazing that there are caring people in this world who have gone through difficult times themselves, and use their experiences to help others through their hard times."

CORY'S MOM

"As a single parent, I am extremely grateful to the Ryan Saturno Patient Amenities Fund for providing financial support to us during Cory’s journey.  Thank you for your legacy Ryan."
