THE FOSTER FOUNDATION
In June of 2001, Stacey Leondis, then a student at Garden City High School, established the Foster Foundation. FOSTER (Fighting Osteo Sarcoma Through Everyday Research) is an organization whose purpose is to support the research of osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer that primarily affects children. Stacey's goal was to assist the fight against osteosarcoma by collecting funds and putting them towards promising research projects. All funds received by the foundation are tax exempt and are used exclusively to further research. Stacey planned to attend medical school in August 2008.
