LITTLE FALLS, N.J. – A Little Falls man is raising funds to help his brother who he calls “my best friend,” battle cancer.
A GoFundMe campaign created for Ralph Candelieri by his brother Robert Candelieri has garnered nearly $40,000 in donations by Monday morning.
“My brother Ralph, my best friend, a husband and amazing father of two, was diagnosed with lung cancer,” Robert wrote on the page.
“Ralph has been undergoing chemotherapy and radiation. Even with great medical and supplemental health benefits, having cancer is very costly. Expenses have become a major stress and distraction while they try to focus on staying positive and becoming healthy,” he wrote.
Ralph, his wife Toni Ann, and children Mia, 10 and Carlo, 7, “are in need of assistance. I promise your generosity will not be forgotten,” Robert wrote.
