It has been almost a decade since the creation of the HEADstrong Foundation. They were created by and in honor of Nicholas Colleluori, a Hofstra University lacrosse player who was diagnosed with terminal cancer during his sophomore year. Since then, his family has devoted their efforts into providing mentorship, family support, and grants hospitality services to improve patients experience. In this time, they have created HEADstrong Lacrosse, a competitive sports club focused on developing student-athletes and coaching them to their greatest potential. The Collelouri family also offers Nick’s House, an extended stay residence offered to families who must travel to seek treatment.
