This website has been created in honor of our son, Anthony V. Mannino, who passed away on March 8, 2009 from Esophageal cancer. There are many parts to this website. Our hope is that as you view each section, you will come to know our Son, our Hero, and you will gain any information that may be helpful to you.

Anthony was just 3 month’s shy of his 20th birthday when he was diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer, Stage IV.  He  battled this Cancer for 22 months, beating the original diagnosis of 6 to 12 months.  It is with our deep sorrow that Anthony succumbed to this disease on March 8th, 2009, at 10:12 pm.  In that long battle, he fought it bravely with dignity and compassion.  As we look back on those 22 months, we’ve come to cherish and learn from them, as well.  It was not uncommon for Anthony to comfort and encourage others….young and old, in and out of treatment centers, while undergoing his own treatment.  It is in that same spirit of Compassion, Hope, and Courage that we carry on his fight in his name through his Cancer Foundation.

One person can make a difference, we saw that in our Anthony.  Now we can all make a difference in Anthony’s Legacy of Compassion, Hope, and Courage. 

Please join us in keeping our son's legacy alive.

Heroes Shed No Tears
