Jennifer Graves is the current Treasurer and Silent Auction Chair of the Lawrence A. Martucci Benefit Corp. (L.A.M.B). Jennifer was drawn to this organization through her close friendship with Luana Martucci-Paloma and her family. Learning of the impact the treatment itself had on little Lorenzo, and how that affected the family, drew her to this organization because of their desire to find the prevention for childhood cancer so that a cure is never even necessary. Through the search for the prevention of childhood cancer and the charities commitment to supporting the families of the oncology patients, Jennifer feels she is making an impact in others lives for the better.
