Giving for Graz

in 2015, Ed Graziano, Founder and Coach of the prestigious NJ Marlins (, was diagnosed with Glioblastoma, an aggressive and incurable form of brain cancer.

Ed has undergone extensive brain surgeries and rigorous treatments including radiation, chemotherapy and clinical research trials. Unfortunately our brother, friend, and beloved Coach is now in the final stages of this disease. 

Ed's wife and two children have been by his side to provide hope and comfort him in his fight. His son Jared has taken over Ed's role with the NJ Marlins, and 2017 was a record year for the prospering team— 8 Marlins players were drafted to the MLB this year alone! 

The Grazianos face unimaginable costs for treatments and procedures including craniotomies, multiple rounds of radiation, and costly immunotherapy trials.

100% of proceeds of this GoFundMe page will be donated to offset Ed's Medical Expenses. 

Ed has touched the lives of so many players and their families for decades, making dreams come true for student athletes everywhere.
Please help us give back to a man who has dedicated his life to helping others succeed.
