Forever In Our Hearts!
In Loving Memory of Dr. Anthony Musella
Help me in the fight against
Thank you for visiting my personal page. I created this page because I want to make an impact in the fight against colorectal cancer. My uncle, Dr. Anthony Musella, passed away due to colon cancer. He fought a long hard battle that unfortunatley took his life 8 years ago this coming April. Not only was he a son, a husband, a father, a brother and an uncle, but he was also dear friend to many in his practice and his community. He was an advocate for Challenged Youth Sports, a nonprofit recreational sports program for children with disabilities. Tony's Place, named in honor of Dr. Anthony Musella, former vice chairman of the Board of Recreation Commissioners, is a wheelchair friendly play space where people of all ages and abilities can interact and play in an accommodating environment. This park opened on November 7th, at Seven Presidents Ocean Front Park in Monmouth County. Though he was not physcially around to see the grand opening, he there watching over us with that smile.
Aside from his great accomplishments, my favorite memory of my uncle is, and always will be, going to my grandparents beach house in Lavalette, New Jersey. He would take us out on the boat and if we were lucky he would let us drive, which he always did. Heading back to the house, we always celebrated our birthdays together. It is one childhood memory that I will never forget.
Not a day goes by that you aren't remember. This is for you Uncle Tony, you'll never be forgotten and I will run the Colon Cancer Challenger with you in my heart.
The Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation (CCCF) has been working since 2003 to fund screening progams for the uninsured, and provide much needed funds to young investigators who are committed to finding a cure for colorectal cancer.
This year their goal is to raise $1 Million dollars. $1 Million dollars will allow CCCF to greatly enhance and expand it's awareness programs focused on encouraging the public to Get the Facts, Talk to their Family and Doctor about their medical history and risk factors, and Get Screened! All in an effort to spread the word that colorectal cancer is preventable, treatable and beatable with prevention and screening.
