Help Alyssa finish college

On February 28, 2018 Lisa Cassinelli-Cox passed away after a valiant battle with cancer. Lisa had celebrated her 50th birthday just a month earlier. Among those that Lisa left behind is her only child Alyssa. Alyssa is in her junior year of college working toward a double major in English and Recreational Therapy which will require an extra year of school.

Lisa has very proud of Alyssa, and she often bragged about her incredible daughter. Alyssa is Lisa’s “mini-me” with the same engaging smile and sparkling eyes. They both could light up a room with their smile.

We would like to honor Lisa by helping Alyssa with some of her school expenses.
