Founders, Josephine Pedone and Nick Pedone continue to Fight Hard Smile Big everyday in memory of their only child, "Sweet Nicholas". Their focus is to deliver smiles to courageous kids fighting cancer and inspire them to keep smiling as often as they can, just like Nicholas did!
They feel privileged and grateful to be working side by side with a wonderful group of individuals with big hearts who volunteer their time to help manage and lead the Nicholas Pedone Foundation. Nick sits on the board and supports with daily operations and fundraising events along side our incredible Smile Squad Board of Directors. Josephine volunteers her time as President. Together, they work hand in hand with all the board members to ensure that all children fighting cancer receive extra smiles and are encouraged to "Fight Hard Smile Big" with love, hope and comfort.
