The STEPHANIE’S JOY for life Cancer Care Foundation was founded in 2011 in memory of Stephanie Joy Rosenstrauch, who battled breast cancer bravely for 6 years and finally lost her battle.  Stephanie was all about people.  She understood all too well the toll that this horrible disease takes on patients and on their families.  Whenever she could, she would talk to other patients who were struggling through cancer, offering them the benefit of her experience, providing encouragement and hope, and lending a caring heart.  Today, her loving family and many, many friends carry on that spirit through the STEPHANIE’S JOY for life Cancer Care Foundation


Our Mission is to finance supportive care for cancer patients and their families. Working hand in hand with the Monter Cancer Center, a facility of the North Shore/LIJ Health system, we aim to raise funds to:


-Pay for patient transport to Doctor visits and to radiation or chemotherapy treatments, when family or friends are not available to take them.

-Pay for home care companions or nurses for cancer patients who cannot be left alone.

-Pay for wigs for chemotherapy patients, and for prostheses.
