Providing HOPE for Families Fighting Cancer

Suburban Furniture Agrees to $25,000 Match
During the DMCCF Holiday Drive for Our Heroes

Help Us Reach Our Goal Today!!!

We are truly grateful for your generous support during a year filled with the many obstacles and difficulties created by the pandemic. These hurdles are even more traumatic for our “Heroes” who have continued their battle against cancer during the pandemic.


The Dean Michael Clarizio Cancer Foundation has been so blessed that we have been able to donate almost $325,000 to 85 Heroes since early 2020. We are truly humbled by your generosity and can’t thank you enough for honoring my brother Dean’s dream to directly assist individuals and families during their battle with cancer. We are proud to have donated almost $1,600,000 to 360 children and families over the years. We are so appreciative of your ongoing support and look forward to celebrating these achievements with you in the upcoming 2022 year.


We certainly could not achieve this success without you. For this upcoming Holiday Season we are fortunate to be provided with a special blessing. Suburban Furniture & Mattress of Succasunna, NJ reached out to the DMCCF and has once again offered a $25,000 Donation Match for this Holiday Season. Suburban Furniture will match dollar for dollar every donation made to the DMCCF from now until the end of the year. We are so thankful to the Suburban Furniture Family for their ongoing support and incredible generosity to the Dean Michael Clarizio Cancer Foundation.


As the Holiday Season rapidly approaches, we are kindly asking you to remember our DMCCF HEROES. While preparing for holiday celebrations with family, it’s important for us to stop and reflect on the joy and blessings in our lives and to acknowledge the less fortunate. Our Heroes have not been able to put a pause on their fight with cancer because of the pandemic. They have had to find safe ways to continue their fight and can use our help. When shopping for gifts and gathering with loved ones, please consider setting aside a portion of your holiday budget to support the work of the DMCCF with a tax-deductible charitable donation. No matter how small the amount, your donation will allow us to continue to support individuals and families during their battle with cancer. 100% of your donations will go to these Heroes fighting cancer during the holiday season. Thank you so much for your incredible generosity.

DMCCF Mission

The Dean Michael Clarizio Cancer Foundation was founded by its namesake, Dean, during his personal battle with cancer in 2005.  The 501(c)3 non-profit foundation is tirelessly operated by Dean’s family and friends who volunteer their time and talents in an effort to carry out his vision; helping others who face the challenges of cancer with financial, spiritual, and emotional support.  Given the changing times and the rising costs of healthcare there is an astounding number of cancer patients in need of financial assistance. To help families in need to mitigate these costs, the DMCCF hosts four annual fundraising events with the 100% of the proceeds going directly to the individuals and families during their battle with cancer. With your support, we have donated over $1.4m and set a goal to reach over $2 million in two years.

DMCCF Events

Each year the DMCCF hosts four major events. These events are; The Great Night Out (January) Join us for drinks, music and good company as we assist a deserving hero in their fight against cancer , Annual Dinner Gala (March) Come out for a great night of food, drinks, and dancing. Meet heroes past and present as we assist new heroes in their fight against this terrible disease, Golf Tournament (June) A fun day of golf preceded by brunch and lots of swag followed by a buffet dinner and tricky tray auction as we celebrate and help special heroes in their fight against cancer, and our Poker Tournament (November) A full-fledged casino-style poker tournament along side a full slate of Sunday NFL football and buffet lunch. Join us as we raffle off prizes and help a special hero in their fight with cancer.

In addition, we attend many events and take part in countless others.
Some of the more notable include; Cuts for Coors, Karaoke for a Cause, Frances Foundation For Kids Fighting Cancer Gala, Laughing with the Stars, and our board members spend a day at Camp Happy Times every year.

DMCCF Heroes

Most of us are fortunate enough to just wake up every morning healthy, but for many people that is an impossibility. The DMCCF, with your help, assists our heroes in overcoming the financial burden that comes with a cancer diagnosis.

​"A hero is an ordinary individual that finds the strength to ​persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles."
- Christopher Reeve
