Skullcap Worn by Pope Francis
This is a unique opportunity to take home Pope Francis' skullcap.
Pope Francis, born Jorge Mario Bergoglio, is certainly destined to be remembered as one of the best loved Popes in history.
Elected Holy Father on March 13, 2013, Pope Francis immediately conquered hearts across the world, thanks to his straight-forward nature, his humility and empathy. He is approachable and has had more direct contact with the people than any other Pope before him.
This is a truly unmissable chance for anyone who follows his masses from St. Peter's Square and would like to take home a precious keepsake.
The "Together for Fily" association was set up because we, the parents, wanted to continue what our son had started.
The main purpose of the association is to help children and teenagers suffering from tumors or other serious illnesses by putting a smile on their faces. The joy of giving emotions, respite or distraction to sick children, especially on cancer wards, is something indescribable. We want to give young patients something else to think about instead of spending hours looking at the drips and the chemotherapy trolleys.
It doesn't take much to change a young patient's day: a gift, a surprise or an unexpected gesture of kindness.
We want to help parents who are caring for children and suffering as they try to be strong for their loved ones.
We are Filippo's parents and we spent 14 months at the "Center for Tumors in Milan. We experienced a period that allowed us to touch suffering first hand. We understand the needs that both children and parents have at a time like that. We want share our experience to help others: if we can support parents who are suffering we'll be keeping Filippo's memory and smile alive.
The Association encourages community solidarity and carries out charitable activities and social and health assistance for children and teenagers affected by cancer or other serious illnesses, by bringing gifts, organizing trips, visits and leisure days for young patients and their parents.
This fundraiser is for the purchase of carbon crutches for a young amputee.
