We are now heading into our 5th year as a non-profit organization. We can’t thank you all enough for your continued support because without you attending our events, donating your time and talents, purchasing our product and just making donations, we could not do what we do! Your support is what has made this all possible – Since June of 2013 we have given $150,000 in financial assistance, helping 97 families many of them multiple times. Since 2014 we have given $45,000 towards pediatric brain tumor research at Dana Farber through the Evan T. Mandeville DIPG Research Fund hoping to someday put an end to this horrible disease and we have awarded $6,000 in scholarships through the Cory E. Gaudet Memorial Scholarship fund. Please visit our website and join our mailing list today! Please go to our Facebook page and “like” us “comment and share” our stuff! Invite your friends and family to our events, to like our pages, to talk about us & what we do. Raising money is truly one of the hardest jobs I have ever had – sharing Cory’s Crusaders, Inc. with others will only help to expand our support base! Do it for Cory Gaudet and all of our other brave angels & warriors.
Jim and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

On behalf of Cory’s Crusaders as well as the families we are able to assist Jim and I would like to Thank everyone that made our Annual Christmas Tree Jamboree such a great day. A special shout of to Kris & Deb Kieon, owners of Attleborro Farms for their continued support, all of their employees that made purchasing a Christmas tree a fun experience and to my sister Mary Desrochers along with Louise and Kelly Presby for putting it all together and taking care of the raffle and product tables. Bob Desrochers for being such an amazing Santa Clause once again and most importantly I would like to thank everyone that attended this event because without all of you and your support we would not be able to do what we do – Financially assisting families that have child battling brain cancer as well as fund much needed DIPG research! This event raised $1,000
Thank you to all of you that support us by attending our events & make donations. Last month for July we were able to financially assist 5 families totaling $4,534.49. Some of the things we helped with were medical bills not covered by insurance, mortgages and loans . We even got to grant a little boy a wish of an Ipad. These are bills we all take for granted to be able to pay but when you have a child fighting for their life, being with them and not being able to work becomes your reality. People struggle not only emotionally but financially as well! Being able to grant a wish to one of our brave warriors is so important as well. The purchase of an Ipad may not seem like a necessity to some but when your child has to be taken away from their siblings for treatment sometimes this becomes their way of staying in touch. Being able to face time family and friends is priceless when you are far away due to treatments. They also help pass the time when a child has to been in the hospital for hours, days, weeks or sometimes months.. In our case Cory’s first gift he was given was an Ipad. To see his face light up when he received it meant the world to us. He used his Ipad daily to watch movies, play games, message friends & family and to help with his motor skills as his tumor progressed. It eventually became his only form of communication with us when he could no longer speak and had to use an app called speech assist. These kids are all so very brave. They are fighting for their life. I ask that you please take a moment to visit our Brave Warrior photo album to see some of the children you have directly helped!
