Nicholas DiNofrio, 17, the late Marianne DiNofrio’s grandson, and a member of the Key Club at Mainland Regional High School in Linwood, New Jersey, joined his father John J. DiNofrio and grandfather, John C. DiNofrio. The rising senior chaired a Key Club fundraising campaign last fall. Approximately 100 students raised $1,600 for the Marianne DiNofrio Cancer Research Foundation, which was included in the Foundation’s donation to AtlantiCare. Nicholas DiNofrio credited his father for suggesting and guiding him through the campaign.

Maria Hendricks, assistant vice president, Oncology Service Line; and regional service administrator for Egg Harbor Township, AtlantiCare, said the donation will support AtlantiCare’s Gastrointestinal/Hepatobiliary Initiative to enhance the care of patients and their loved ones facing these cancers, which include pancreatic cancers.

“We appreciate the generosity of the Marianne DiNofrio Cancer Research Foundation, LLC,” said Samantha Kiley, executive director, AtlantiCare Foundation. “We commend Nicholas and his fellow Key Club members for their voluntarism. The Fund, the DiNofrios, and the students have commemorated Marianne DiNofrio’s compassion as they’ve raised awareness about pancreatic cancer and assisted those facing it.”

The Foundation also presented $5,000 to the Fox Chase Cancer Center.

The Marianne DiNofrio Pancreatic Cancer Research Foundation, LLC, is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. The Foundation raises funds and awareness in memory of the late Marianne DiNofrio, who died of pancreatic cancer in 2009.
