Our Purpose

The Janis Foligno Foundation was created in loving memory of Janis Foligno, cherished daughter, wife, mother, sister, cousin and friend, who passed away after a courageous battle with breast cancer in July, 2009.

Janis Foligno was a pillar of strength for all of her family and friends. Everyone who knew Janis was touched by her love, caring spirit, generous heart and concern for others. Her compassionate nature will continue to touch the lives of others through the work of the Janis Foligno Foundation.

We are committed to finding a cure and helping those battling the disease fight for a brighter future. The Janis Foligno Foundation believes in promoting cancer awareness to aide in early detection and prevention. While also recognizing that working together offers the best opportunities to ensure a bright future for everyone.

Supporting efforts for a better future

We are devoted to fundraising for the fight against cancer, with efforts to invest the money we raise into research projects, treatment care, support efforts and innovative studies. We work closely with local organizations to ensure the funding is used to bring us closer to finding a cure.

The Janis Foligno Foundation is a registered Canadian Charity. Our registration number is: 82501 9854 RR0001

Who We Are

The Foligno family name is well known in Sudbury, but not only because of the on ice performances of Mike, Nick and Marcus. The late Janis Foligno was known for giving back to the community where she was born and raised, and her family has continued that tradition in her name with the Janis Foligno Foundation.
