Luana Martucci founded the Lawrence A. Martucci Benefit, Corp. in 2011 in honor of her late brother Lawrence who lost his life to cancer treatments at 6 years old. After Lawrence was diagnosed right before his 4th birthday with a life-threatening tumor, Luana's family spent countless weeks, days, hours in and out of hospitals supporting Lawrence through two years of treatments only to lose him, cancer free in 1992. Luana did not want to see her brother's strife go in vain and therefore swore to dedicate her time to honor him and to support research for a prevention, because the true goal should be a world without cancer.
