Our Vision is to ensure that no one on The Florida Suncoast faces Cancer alone.

In order to further our mission of 1-to-1 support and resources for local cancer fighters and caregivers, it is important to continuously spread the word of the foundation and its programs. Our strategy is to make sure that Team Tony is visible in the community, and that people know about our support program and medical grant program.
We aim to educate and inform the local community about the importance of support during the fight against cancer, and to encourage people to reach out to Team Tony.
By engaging the community, we can ensure no one has to face cancer alone.

We inform the public and private sectors about Team Tony and its programs through active and passive avenues. We engage in social media, leave brochures at medical offices, and keep our website current. We also create relationships with local oncology and radiation office in the area by hosting informative lunch and learn sessions where we educate the medical staff on our support program and medical grant program.
We have easy to use referral forms that enable doctors and nurses to request 1-to-1 support for their patients. We also take requests for support through our website, telephone, email, and in person.
We engage the local community by volunteering at events, setting up information booths, and by hosting cancer connection events.

While we can evaluate the impact of your grant in the following ways, there’s no way to measure the peace of mind and relief those we serve feel when they can concentrate on healing instead of worrying about paying their medical bills. • Direct patient feedback • Teammate surveys and interviews • Quantitative measures of people we serve

Team Tony saw steady growth since it was founded in 2010. In the past year alone, Team Tony was able to match 50 cancer fighters and 20 caregivers for 1-to-1 support. We were also able to recruit 50 new cancer survivors and 7 new caregivers who act as our volunteer mentors (Teammates). In the past year, we have begun to conduct formal training workshops for our volunteers mentors in order to properly equip them with the necessary skills for offering effective and empathetic support to others. Team Tony is now able to offer a small Medical Grant to the cancer fighters and caregivers in our 1-to-1 support program. This grant is allocated for expenses that have been incurred due to an individual's cancer diagnosis, up to a maximum of $1500 per fighter. It encompasses any medical cost related to treatment or recovery.
