The Jaime’s LILAC Foundation
Laughter, Inspiration, and Love Against Cancer
The Jaime’s LILAC Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) organization founded in 2014 in loving memory of Jaime Moltisanti Cucuzza, a caring young woman who succumbed to lung cancer at the age of 38. We are committed to honoring Jaime’s memory by giving something back to the growing community of cancer patients, their loved ones, and anyone involved in their treatment. Our primary goal is to raise funds to provide care packages to patients who are fighting cancer. In addition, we will also provide funding to hospitals leading the way in cancer research.
Jaime was a strong, passionate individual who always strived to positively impact anyone who was lucky enough to know her. Her sickness did nothing to change this. While she battled stage 4 lung cancer, she continued to be a loving wife, daughter, sister, friend, and mother to her 5 year old little girl. Jaime always thought of others first and poured every ounce of her being into her friends, family and community.
During her illness, she took her compassion one step further. Even while she underwent difficult treatments, she took the time to inspire others by blogging about her experiences or to lend her personal support to someone else fighting cancer. Jaime always took it upon herself to poke fun at her illness, which made other people brave enough to laugh at their adversity too.
For these reasons, we created the acronym LILAC because it truly reflects the legacy Jaime left behind:
Laughter, Inspiration, and Love Against Cancer.
