This year’s Hoops for Hope Event will be uniquely dedicated to sisters Lisa DeCicco and Gina DeCicco Salituro. We will honor Lisa in her triumph as we remember a source of her strength and inspiration, her sister Gina. We are recognizing two wives, mothers, daughters, friends, sisters.
Anyone who ever met Gina was immediately drawn to her effervescent personality. Gina fought cancer everyday but she never let it win over her life. With her positive attitude and endearing laugh, she lived every day bravely and taught us the power of positive thinking. She was a friend unlike any other. Sadly, she passed in May of 2008. Aunt Lisa, as she is affectionately known, is a special, trusted friend, an everyday role model for many. She has stepped into the lives of Gina’s children with love and memories while continuing to teach them the importance of celebrating the joys of life. Her zest for living is evident in all that she does. Not only is Lisa special to her friends and family, but she is well respected and admired by her colleagues. Lisa has spent her career serving the YWCA where she presently holds the position of VP of Operations Administration & H.R.
These are two extraordinary women, both diagnosed with breast cancer and both battled courageously. Two remarkable lives. Two true role models in the fight against Breast Cancer. We are so happy to have the opportunity to celebrate their lives with you.
