Talia’s Legacy Children’s Cancer Foundation
"Finding a CURE to Childhood Cancer and Bringing JOY Along the Way."
Founded by Desiree and Mattia Castellano. We became an official 501(c)(3) in 2015. We are keeping Talia's Legacy alive by stopping at nothing to find a CURE for childhood cancer. *Originally founded September 10, 2013.
Our Mission: The corporation is organized exclusively for charitable, educational and scientific purposes, including such purposes of those organizations that qualify as exempt organizations under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (or corresponding provision of any future United States Internal Revenue law) (the “code”) including without limit, purposes of raising funds for cancer research for childhood and other cancer drugs, and clinical trials; raising and bringing national awareness to the prevalence of childhood cancer; assist families and children by establishing family cancer care centers in major cities and other local outreach programs and events; the making of distributions to organizations that qualify as exempt organizations under the Code and support related organizations.
In a 2012 during The Truth 365 interview, Talia was asked, “if you had one wish, what would it be?” Talia’s answer “...the cure to cancer." This is why we do what we do. Talia’s one wish is what drives us to continue our efforts. We plan events across the country and tirelessly raise funds through awareness. In order to make her wish come true, we continue to post on social media and visit young girls battling childhood cancer in the hospital. We provide customized makeovers to support and encourage them to have a positive outlook. Because that is what Talia would do if she were still on the earth to do.
Talia’s makeup tutorials can be seen on her YouTube channel, Taliajoy18. Talia continues to inspire millions around the world and continues to make a difference. Visit our Facebook Page for updates!
