The Peter Powerhouse Foundation

The Peter Powerhouse Foundation was started by Peter Zucca, a fifth grader and childhood cancer survivor.  Peter likes to raise money to help cancer kids by playing with his friends.  Most of our fundraising events are kid or family centered for that very reason.  Our mission is to improve the lives of kids with cancer, by gifting facilities that treat them, and to help survivors to thrive, by giving research grants.  His 2014 goal was to gift 100 wagons to AI duPont Hospital for Children; lots of the kids there ride wagons instead of wheelchairs.  His mission was accomplished when he delivered all 100 wagons with a price tag of $10,000.  2015 is going to get a little crazy, as his plan is to gift Children's Hospital of Philadelphia; AI duPont Hospital for Children and Memorial Sloan-Kettering with special goggles for the kids to wear during their MRI scans.  This comes with a price tag of about $250,000. And from a very special place in his heart when he was three years old he coded from the anesthesia he was placed under during a MRI.  If his facility had goggles he would have been watching Thomas and Friends instead of having someone bag breath for him.
