Philadelphia, PA – The HEADstrong Foundation is embracing the spirit of the holidays this weekend by launching their latest service and volunteer offering, HEADtable™. The program seeks to bring the elements of the family dinner table into the hospital in an effort to provide normalcy, while nurturing the well-being of patients. The service will provide meal alternatives several times during the year in hopes of improving accommodations for those inpatient for treatment.

Led, by the Colleluori family and dedicated group of volunteers, many who have been affected by the disease will work to transform conference rooms into dining rooms and serve a specially prepared meal.

On Sunday December 16, 2012 the HEADstrong Foundation will host a pre-holiday feast for the patients, families and medical staff in the Rhoads Pavilion at Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
The holiday themed feast will be served from 2:00PM-4:00PM at the Rhoads Pavilion specifically floors 3,6 and 7. In addition, to providing the meal, holiday carolers will be spreading cheer throughout the floors.

“In this season of giving it is our pleasure and privilege to introduce our latest service initiative, HEADtable™. At HEADstrong, we are families helping families in an effort to provide support, encouragement, compassion and normalcy. As a family who has lived the realities of blood cancer, we believe in the power that comes from being together. We look forward to building on this service offering through the support of corporations, restaurants, consumer products companies as well as empowering other blood cancer survivors to join our efforts. Our goal is to be able to provide this service to multiple medical facilities. Together we can make a difference.” Cheryl Colleluori, HEADstrong President and Nick’s Mom

HEADtable™ is just one of the many ways that the HEADstrong Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization nationally headquartered in Holmes, PA is working to improve the quality of life for patients and families battling blood cancers.

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
