The Marie C. Petrilli Cancer Research and Treatment Memorial Fund is a 501(c)(3) charity based in Winthrop, MA. Over the last 17 years since the inception of the fund, we have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars through our fundraising efforts.

We have given hundreds of thousands of dollars to many families and patients over the years. Most of these generous donations go unheard of by others.
