The Greg Wolf Fund was established on January 19, 2005, to commemorate the life of Gregory Joseph Wolf, by his family and by friends who feel privileged to have had Greg touch their lives. In the fall of 2002, at the age of 20, Greg was diagnosed with leukemia. It was during Greg’s battle that his spirit, fierce determination and sense of humor gave strength to all around him. The mission of this fund is to honor Greg’s life as a “man for others,” and to perpetuate his generous spirit by giving back to the institutions and organizations that ultimately defined Greg’s life. The fund contributes its resources not only to fund research in the fight against blood cancers, but also to aid in the care and comfort of young cancer patients and their families. The Board of Directors and Officers of The Greg Wolf Fund pledge to all of those who support the Fund, whether through contributions or service, to ensure that Greg’s spirit, indomitable will to live, deep faith in God, and love of humankind will live on and will triumph in the battle against cancer.

To make a charitable donation, please contact: The Greg Wolf Fund 15 Old Cabin Road, Newtown PA 18940.
