Four Months Later…

It will be four months on September 7th…

Its amazing how fast time has passed, it seems like it was just yesterday that she died and we miss her more than we can put into words.

Joe & Alese at Yankee Stadium - April 2006

The Board of Directors for Alese Coco Inc. – Fight 2 Win Campaign is in place, the paperwork has been filed and the only thing we’re waiting to receive tax exempt status from the IRS. The Board of Directors is listed below:

Jan Baird – President, K2 Communications
Adriane Brown – President and CEO, Honeywell Transportation Systems
Paul Coco – Alese’s Dad
Greg Creed – President, Taco Bell
Owen O’Connor MD, PhD – Chief of Lymphoma Services, Columbia University
Michael Oberman – Partner, Kramer Levin
Pamela Smiley – Director, Quality Assurance, Honeywell AALS

Junior Members…

Shallyn Coco – Alese’s Sister
Aaron Coco – Alese’s Cousin
Joseph Longo – Alese’s former boyfriend
Abby Oberman – Alese’s dear friend

We cannot solicit or accept donations until the IRS number is in hand. Until then, we’ll wait, plan, prepare and pray. The website is still under construction and will be launched after the tax exempt status is received. We’re going to make some other major announcements in the coming months.

This has been a productive, but difficult summer. Our family remains grief stricken. The loss of Alese is immeasurable and we request your prayers for God’s comfort.

Heavenly Father, thank you for your many blessings... We ask that you would give the people guiding this foundation wisdom and give the researchers the knowledge to find a cure for this cancer. Father, we give you praise in all things and we fall at your feet and worship You and only You.
