In honor of Olivia's fight against cancer.

Olivia Hope Foundation was created to honor the wish of Olivia Hope LoRusso, who passed from Acute Myeloid Leukemia in 2017. It was her vision and hope that someday, children afflicted with AML (Acute Myeloid Leukemia) and other childhood cancers would not have to suffer the way she did.


Our mission is to fund research aimed at discovering targeted therapies, which have less caustic effects on children, and to improve the quality of life for all children and families suffering from childhood cancer. 


Ultimately, we dream of helping to find a cure and ending the impact of this horrible and deadly disease.
