Many people have found great satisfaction by making gifts in memory of a friend, loved one or aiding the fight against cancer by contributing towards Cancer research.
Our own family witnessed at first hand the devastating effects that Cancer can have on a loved one.
We as a family and in memory and honor of Nikolaos Stamatelatos are raising as much funds as possible to put towards the “Greek Children’s Fund” associated with the world renowned Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital.
This Fund, which helps the day-to-day needs of Greek-American and Greek national patients and their families undergoing cancer treatment was established in 1983. This charity organizes events benefiting the fund. Past events have included a concert featuring popular Greek entertainers that raised about $1 million and a telethon that raises $400,000 annually.
The Greek Children's Fund provides assistance to more than 400 families a year.
To this end, members of Nikolaos’ family will be participating in a charity run called, “The Terry Fox Run for Cancer Research”, on Saturday, October 16th 2004 at 9:30 a.m. located in Central Park, Manhattan.
Your help and support would be much appreciated and all monies raised are being contributed directly to the Greek Children’s Fund/Memorial Sloan - Kettering Hospital research unit with no administrative overhead.
You may send a check, money order or bank draft payable to “The Greek Children’s Fund”, and mail it to our post office box.

And of course cash contributions can be made directly to any member of the Stamatelatos-Scully family.
Please provide your name and address where at all possible and a letter of acknowledgement plus receipt will be provided by Memorial Sloan-Kettering enabling the donation to be claimed as an exemption on your tax returns.
Many thanks in advance from all the Stamatelatos family and please remember all donations, no matter what size, make such a difference.
