Sam Bombardiere
Sam Bombardiere is a resident of Toms River. She recently underwent emergency surgery to remove a large mass on her right ovary. The family was devastated when they found out that the mass was malignant.
Sam is a freshman at Centenary College where she plays on the women’s soccer team. Not only is she an athlete
who kicks serious butt on the soccer field, but she is also a straight A student. Sam is beautiful, intelligent, caring, and hilarious, and she needs your help.

Her treatment will be a long and tough battle, not only on her but also on her entire family. Financially, the family will be struggling with treatment, traveling, and added expenses that come with this upsetting diagnosis.



Jacob Bissiloto
Jacob Basilotto is a 15-year-old high school freshman at Brick Township High School. Although he was born with just half a heart, over the years he has proven that he has more heart than most.  Jacob was born with a Congenital Heart Defect known as HLHS (Hypo-plastic Left Heart Syndrome).  Since December 10, 2015, Jacob has been on the waiting list for a heart transplant and is considered the most urgent.

 

Jacob has undergone multiple invasive medical interventions including four open heart surgeries, at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), frequent testing and an abundance of different medications and therapies since he was born.  A couple of years ago, they were told that he only has one working kidney, which has made it even more difficult as he, the team of doctors, and his family wove their way through different medical treatments over the years.  At the age of five, Jacob developed PLE (Protein-Losing Enteropathy), which further complicated his already-complex condition and came with a myriad of new symptoms which have made it impossible for him to live a normal teenage life.
